Some time ago I had the chance to (briefly) work on a ship built in 
the early 50's in Italy. Apart from picking up a few words of Italian 
(Lucio Corridio = Corridor Lights) I got to see some of the very 
neatly done original electrical stuff - most of which was a work of 
art ! But one interesting feature was that all the starters had green 
for stop and red for start which is the opposite of modern starters.

But if you think about it, it makes sense - press the green button 
for safe, press the red button for danger (start a machine).
Now we press a red button to make safe, and press a green button to 
make dangerous !

WANTED: "Software CD ROM Kit" for Canon CLBP 360-PS printer (Canon 
part no RH6-3612, or possibly RH6-3810, or RH6-3610 might do). I've a 
dead HD and need this CD so I can replace the disk and re-install the 
printer OS on it. If anyone knows where I might get hold of one I'd 
be grateful - requests to Canon drew a blank, it's been out of 
support for years.
Alternatively, if anyone has one of these and would let me image 
their hard disk ...
