Wow, does this shot bring back memories! Kids these days might not even know what this is! I remember typing so fast and the keys always getting stuck on each other! (I STILL TYPE TOO FAST but now I just get type-o's! Ha!)

Wonderful image, Ron. Not surprised at ALL that received a big win here! CONGRATULATIONS!!! -Laura
