Thanks for the link Jeremy. It brought back memories (sharpened them up
somewhat too!)

In the late 1960s I built a handful for friends (so got paid peanuts) and the
very last one was in the 1970s for a guy who always complained that the ones
he'd tried weren't 'bright' enough - so somewhat tongue in cheek I made one
that was basically an overdriven 741 op-amp. He loved it!

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
