Great site Terry. How time flies by. Now long retired as a telecommunications engineer, I still have fond memories of using computers gone by:
IBM 1620 in 1968
HP 9100A 1970
ICL System 4 1971
HP 9800 1974
Olivetti Logos 1978 - a lovely looking machine. Why oh why did I give it away?
and of course the myriads of PC clones thereafter.
There was, and is, something magical about writing a program before using it to generate results. Word processors, spreadsheets and database software may be efficient to use but oh so boring.

I agree Max. Thanks for leaving a comment.
