That's good, because let me tell you, being 'surprised' by a ram in sheep's clothing is not a pleasant experience.

I doubt it was a Tandy5000, but my first was a TandyXXXX running a version of dos shell. Loved that thing. Couldn't tell you a thing about it though other than it had wordperfect on it and I could play a submarine game on it that I had to switch out the disks for.
