Arent SPARC printers amusing. I thought 808x and x86 boxes were silly, asking
you to press F1 to continue if you had the keyboard unplugged.
Got a SPARC printer which when it runs out of paper and you reload it, prints
out a sheet of paper to inform you that the printer is out of paper!!.
Laugh, I nearly did.
