Do you recall how much they charged you for it?

I wonder if these are the guys (Allen and Terry were pretty well-known) who 
wrote a thing called K-Less, which is the "less/more" text viewer of Unix/Linux 
souped up, and given a REALLY fine GUI.  In fact, the GUI was overkill for 
this simple utility, but showed off the icons and graphics.  It looked as good 
as anything *can* look on a 640x400 color screen.  (Not sure if they used the 
flickery 400-line vertical, or just the 200).

I still have KLess on my MM/1, will try to remember to fire it up next time I 
boot that box.  --Mike K.
