now that's cool

As we move forward technologically, our old detritus eventually reaches a point where there's no point to keeping it around -- the new incompatible thing can emulate it better than the original ever could. CP/M reached this state a while ago; now there are emulators for most of the old video consoles, and even the newest PalmOS machines are emulators underneath. But sometimes the beauty of the original is worth keeping around. As in this case, for example.

The real thing goes for $500 on eBay, so it saves money, too!
