While you could be correct, I have been hearing stuff like that since the days when STOP/RUN and LOAD/ENTER buttons were common and a hex LED Display was a fancy option, when a workstation was the size of a desk. Developments in multi-state logic and neural networks could make the last 40 years of computing look like nothing more than an interesting excercise. And while it is possible for some student from BFE to make these types of developments, it will more likely be some patent hungry research lab. --- Mike Taylor Coordinator of Systems Administration and Network Security Indiana State University.
