    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

That was a favorite of college kids but i never owned one.
 I think the closest radio Shack back then was Springfield.

I actually preferred the Deskmate software to windows with all the home management software that came with it on the 1000RL (the one designed to be on the kitchen counter and never turned off).  Manage a collection, shopping list done by aisles, recipe collection that would automatically resize depending on the size of the dinner crowd!
Oh Well

I can remember the Tandy computer with the cassette tape drive.  Then we got the Commodore and then the improved one, after that my son convinced me that a regular computer with Dos was the way to go and I hated Dos.  My son wrote me a menu program so I could launch my programs instead of having to remember what to type in.  I loved Windows when it come out.

We have come a long way from the old Univac computer, with binary codes and vacuum tubes, reel to reel tape and punch cards.
 They were real head bangers *****

My first job was at Illinois Bell Telephone Company and I had to splice those computer reel to reel tapes all day, yep, just sit there and splice tapes, those computers were ginormous.  What an awful job.

Just to tell you how far we have grown in the electronic age.  My daughter had a yard sale about a month ago and she had a word processing typewriter.  Some kid came in and ask his mom "what is that?"  Boy that made me feel old.
When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

My first computer was an IBM, duel 5 1/4 floppy drive. You had to install a floppy into each slot, to boot up DOS, and you had to remember all thise damn DOS codes

I know you are not talking about the Tandy TRS80 with data on a cassette tape.

I got to learn WATFIV in college -- unfortunately I was just a little too late to take WATFOR ("What For") and I missed out on SNOBOL as well --- Oh well.  And who can forget Basic and FORTRAN?
Punch Cards?  What a mess!  and I bet this here little bitty computer on most of our desks is much more powerful than those mamoth room sized things that HAD to have their own room and air conditioner!

Come to think of it, I think I still have Windows 3.1 and DOS 6 on floppy somewhere - Used to have to put them in anytime you wanted to upgrade.  Had to prove to Microsoft that you'd had their product before!

Traveler, I sure am!

One of my son's was so hooked on computers because of his exposure to them as a kid, that he went to college and got his degree in Computers.  Of couse, he was my "nerdy" one, but he now has a very well paid management position in CA.

Can you imagine what are kids and grandkids will be talking about when they get old?
