Hah!  Pure decadence, me and my brother were allowed to just use PETs WITHOUT
any color or sound!  And we only got to use them for a couple hours a weekday,
excepting summer, when we could not use them at all...  and we were lucky
to have one with an aligned C2N!
(tip: avoid the cream colored 'brick' C2Ns they are pretty flaky)

  True story here, got the picture to prove it too
  (by then we had access to the only 4040 Disk Drive in the school):

  I'm facing the computer, and my brother is next to me (the one with the wild hair).
