	The Macs are computers of convenience -- Apple supplied
	the Twin Peaks folks with a whole mess of them at (I believe)
	no charge.

	Apple sometimes does some odd things to support the arts.  One
	case I saw was supplying equipment for some current work in
	composing and performing ... um, guess it should be called
	something like modern experimental electronic music.  This
	and Alan Kay (sp?) turned up at a more-or-less private concert
	that I went to a couple years ago.
