Subject: Simult. Lafite MESSAGEHARDCOPIER and HARDCOPYW break with unclear error message

Lisp Version: 13-Mar-84

Description: '
 Using both Lafite MessageHardcopier and HardcopyW, UNBOUND ATOMkeyboard interrupt break window says UNBOUND ATOM edited': { in * } in ( * edited': "27-Mar-84 16':41") (edited': broken) '
and a TTY window for HARDCOPYW or MESSAGEHARDCOPIER says {in *} undefined field name in (fetch 41 OF 27-Mar-84% 16 --)'
The Process Status Window shows both my HARDCOPYW and MESSAGEHARDCOPIER#2 as still active.  The Prompt Window shows my printer (White or Goldenrod) spooling and waiting.'

Attn. Kaplan.  But first check that Ms. Kiewiet is not still having hardware problems.  This sounds like outright flakiness.'

Let''s cancel the AR.'
Yes it certainly seems that hardware was suspect.  The processor sits in my 9x12 office with a DLion processor and NO air conditioning on weekends.  (I can hardly wait till August).'
Monday we replaced the controller after the machine simply refused to boot in any consistent way.  Powering up the machine  sounds like a chorus of dying cats.  (Which I''m told is for want of a new power supply, on back order.)'
C''est la vie!'
