Our first home computer was an Apple IIe. It came with 64 KB RAM, but my dad bought the extended card that put it up to 128 KB RAM. It had no hard drive.

My first home computer was a Timex Sinclair 1000. Yep, back in the early 1980s, I paid $99 for that puppy, added a cassette tape recorder and a portable B&W TV and I had me a computing system -

I'm familiar with chip detectors but not specifically with the Chinook. That shit doesn't just fall off. I can't believe that this crew chief can't tell the difference between an engine and a gearbox.
