Yes. Although it's great to see this first Lisa at least go through all
it's checks and spin/spit disks, my excitement is tempered by the fact it's
no guarantee there won't be problems found once the software arrives. The
drive actually has to load it for a start. Also, I have misgivings about
all three keyboards I have. I couldn't activate the special diagnostic
routine the Lisa is suppose to have. Despite the keyboard passing it's POST
test then, the jury is still out on whether any of the keys actually work!
Anyway, we'll see. One small step at a time...
