I'm looking for ways people are using IBM PCs, XTs, ATs,
or compatibles, for productivity.  Any neat, innovative ideas?
Do you just use Crosstalk to make the PC look like a dumb terminal?
Do you offload editing from your main host?
What PC-based editors do you use (must be more than EDLIN!

We have a single HP 150, an IBM PC, and four ATs, and are
looking for more in order to replace dumb (or at least literate)
terminals of the HP 2621P variety that technically oriented
people now use for COBOL programming, C programming, shell programming,
electronic (UNIX) mail, and word processing.

As an aside, I've noticed the text on my color monitor on the AT
is awfully lousy.  Any experiences with the new enhanced IBM monitor
with enhanced color graphics board (forget the Professional)
and with the Princeton SR-12?  I can't expect people to use a PC
if the display is of much poorer quality than their terminals.

Try looking at the SPF/PC editor, available from Command Technology Corp.
(Ask for Barry Patton 415-339-3530)This package is a micro version of IBM's
SPF package.  It provides full screen editing, communications support, 
extended memory (up to 16Meg) on the AT, browse/edit of multiple files sim-
ultaneously, etc.  Both color and monochrome monitors are supported.
Once you use this package you won't be happy with anything else
