I just procured one of these objects for the first time,having been aware of their existence for many years(~10?). I recall that it spent many of those years on the Recommend Components list, even earning the "star" (longevity) designation. Now in the Oct 2006 issue it has made it to the Deletions section as "no longer recommended". Usually I see a product as "not tried in a while" or such but "no longer recommended" intrigues me. Does anyone know what gives here?
