    Found the invoice...
    would you believe what that 386/33 computer with the Trident 512k video card cost me?

    This is a contest! >> closest guess to the actual price in the next 12 hours (noon eastern time USA) wins a really nice cigar... (or 2 or 3...)

    So, don't enter unless you enjoy cigars... unless you're entering to ENJOY them or because you know someone who will.....
