If you're using your AT for development, check your date and time
occaisionally.  For the second time in a week, we've managed to
clobber our AT's date/time memory (it was easy - honest!).

Right now, the date is set to March 9, 85 - no, not '85 or 1985
but 85.  Needless to say, this can really screw you up if you're
using a make program or calendar, etc....

(For those of you that might not know - use the diagnostics disk
in your guide to operations and chose the 'setup' option (#4).)

Oh, and another thing (sorry).  We managed to convince it that our
360kb double-sided B floppy drive was actually a fixed disk.  That
didn't do much except make it difficult to back up our 20meg disk to
cheap floppies - the B: fixed disk kept filling up, and the machine
thought it wasn't removable ...
