McLibel wasn't boring. It was an important case - Mcdonald's were forced to admit in court that their food was only nutritious in the sense that 'it contained nutrition.'

Looks like a computer connected to keyboards to me. I don't actually know what a Fairlight looks like, it's just a name I know.
