Tony, setting the drive addresses by pulling pins from the cable
might be the smartest thing Tandy ever did from the point of view
of somebody who did tech support for them for half a decade. If
there'd been some way to put the termination resistor in the cable
it would have been even better. Remember, the TRS-80 later called
the Model One really _was_ the first computer marketed to the
ignorant masses, long before "the rest of us" became a slogan.
