  ObjectSoft.  Didn't your company install a public internet access kiosk right here in my
  town's public library?  Yes it did.  Matter of fact, the Killingly Public library is one of
  my customers. Yes, it had Windows 95 and Internet Explorer on it.  Yes it came with state of
  the art hardware.  Yes, it did not work correctly, was never offered to the public and was
  removed one month after installation.
  BTW, that's Killingly, Connecticut.  AKA Danielson.
