My most amusing moment at Macworld was at the huge Digital booth, which had a three-foot high neon sign that said "Digital at Macworld. Imagine that." They had a video pinball gimmick; you could play pinball onscreen, and then one of the fantastic Digital printers would print out a full-color picture of the game's backboard with your score. Once when I passed by the game, it was frozen, and the backboard was displaying a corrupted version of its normal graphic. As Digital employees scurried around trying to fix it, the following message appeared on the backboard:

Not ready error writing device PRN.
Abort, Retry, Ignore?
