Re: Random Chit Chat

Sounds like you're having a bad year SG. I'm sure we all have at least 1 year of our lives that we'd like to forget! Hope you get all your medical issues resolved soon.

Re: Old hard drive

Hard drives are cheap nowadays so, especially if an older drive, not a big loss.

Re: Random Chit Chat

Are you guys talking about those rubber plugs with a bolt in the center that gets tightened to make the seal? I've never used them personally. I thought they were basically used for a temporary,...

Re: Computing in the old days

That is a really cool artifact (is it yours?) but disagree that it is a computer, it's a data lookup table. The cutouts allow one to see the relevant information in each column of data.
