I need to drive by there (somewhere on Old Middlefield, Mountain View)
and see if Reggie's still in business.  I tried once to re-find the
place, and it seemed to be not there, but might not have looked in the
right business centre.

If the place still exists, it gets a high, high recommendation from me.

Very true.  That's one reason why I kept my LJ III so long.  Bruce
eventually got it just before our move, because it was taking up too
much room, and I was using it very seldom.

It should be noted that models after the LJ III were still power hogs,
but unlike the III go into power-saving standby modes.
