        My first modem was 2400 baud, cost $340 and I was charged an extra $40 for the Serial Cable. Took me 45 minutes to download a 600KB (and a bit) file of graphics for an "excellent" program called PrintMaster.


        Like faxes, computers were supposed to produce the "paperless" office. It has been the complete opposite. More paper is used now than before the bloody things though I have to admit that correcting a mistake in a typed document is easier on a computer than a typewriter.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

                *cough* years ago I spent two years working in the City of London and it was amazing seeing the secretaries/PA's etc that worked in the Cannon Street / Bank area. I'm convinced there was an unofficial competition between the financial institutions to employ the best looking women they could find

                They were uniformly slim, young, blond and very attractive.

                aahh - lost youth, where did you go..
