    nobody talks about the fun machines anymore. we've become used to accepting so much less from our computers.

    they glow in the dark so their urban customers can find them during blackouts.

    y 16k was a lot of memory, and we knew exactly what each instruction did. now nobody knows what c# is doing at any time, partly because Windows does what it wants regardless of what its told.

    16K was a lot of memory. If you needed more, you used overlays. It was like a western.

    we had to use overlays because (1) ram was ceramic and ungodly expensive (2) not sequentially addressable due to the bus size. we spent most of the design time figuring out how to fit our data into the limited space.

    Iron core memory when I started in 74. Our puters went from the floor to the Smithsonian.

    years ago i took some classes at Harvard (company paid). They just couldn't understand why i wanted to go where they had an Eniac on display. Columbia had one too, but at the time it was in pieces in the sub cellar. I hated punch cards because i sucked at keying them in.
