The A590 HD Controller is entitled "Party Mix".. The A2000-CR has B-2000 printed on the motherboard, this has actually got nothing to do with it being the second A2000 design, but actually it's there because the B-2000 was designed from the A500 designs. Hence B-52 -> B-2000. Dave Haynie is notorious for using lyrics in his work.. Check out the B-2000 schematics - each page has a lyric quote that suits the contents. Pity he didn't credit the bands / songs he quoted.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. The A500/A500+ have 'Rock Lobster', the A1200 has 'Channel Z' - both are B-52 songs.

Don't be blunt. He said to OPEN UP the computer and LOOK AT the moterboard. It's actually PRINTED ON the motherboard, like, physically. You may be spending too much time in the electronic world and losing awareness of the beautiful, physical world around us. ({[But, Teacher, I can only count from 0 to 1!]})
