Spoke to Dad earlier. He was working on this computer whilst doing his degree after national service in he thinks 1952-3
that's cool. Even in the 70's the computer I was using was as big as a room. All data entry was via punched cards. Output was a ton of dot matrix printed paper. Built my first computer in 1980 from components. Two large 5 1/4" floppy drives (just over 100kb each), one to load the operating system and the other to hold programs and data. These were drives A an B, which is why a hard drive is nowadays usually C as default. Can't believe how data hungry the world has become.
It was hard getting over my addiction to the Hokey Cokey, but I've turned myself around and that's what it's all about.
Currently in twodogs's garage:
2011 Grand Scenic III 1.5dci EDC; Royal Enfield 350 Bullet; Boxes of tools and spare parts I will never need again.
