Does a .357 mag count? It has multiple uses and it serves .38 spl as well.

Works well as a hammer, door stop, and paper-weight also!

Hehe it’s so cheeky though that I think I’ll keep it. ^-^

Yes, it IS a good one even though it seems not to be true!

However, isn't it true that the head of IBM said he saw no reason why any person would want a computer at home?

Yes, I believe that and many other high ranking people (mostly on the business side of the computer industry) seemed to believe that computers were not headed in the personal direction. Rather, they'd grow bigger and more industrialized.

It's amazing how wrong even smart people can be. For instance:

This one seems to have much more validity than the supposed Gates quote. ;D

OK, more thread drift!

My bad. Carried this over from avatar thread.

For those who might want a different pocket knife, check out the Spyderco Delica 4. By far the best pocket knife I've ever had. Holds an edge really well. Suitable for lots of different cutting needs from food and cardboard cutting to personal defense and everything in between. Medium Tex recommended it to me several years ago. It's an awesome knife.

I bought one because of you, Mountaineer. Page 1 of this thread. Foliage green handle.
I left it at my parents' house in FL (on purpose) and now I miss it. Might have to get another one to keep with me.
