Ahh yes, the old days ....
My first PC-type computer experience was a friends Apple II that we proceeded to rebuild and rebuild and rebuild. I dont know how many Beagle brothers products we installed .. . I think a gazillion .. and re-installed and tweaked and re-installed and untweaked! Big Grin | :-D
My own first PC was a Columbia (IBM clone) with 256 kb, 2x 360k floppies, 2 serial ports! and and a CGA graphics card!!! Had the green screen monitor so the colors were green or white. Ran DOS (1.1 through 5)and CPM on that old thing. Even wrote a small interupt process that would allow you to crudely multi-task... The last interation was 1 MB mem with 2 30MB MFM harddrives!, 12 inch color monitor and 1 360kb floppy running DOS 5. I also remember what a pain it was to get those two harddrives to work together but it was easier than working with two RLL drives. Cool | :cool:
Even scarier is that I still have that PC AND it still boots up and runs!
Although I have to admit it is slower than watching paint dry or grass grow. Big Grin | :-D
Cegarman
document code? If it's not intuitive, you're in the wrong field Big Grin | :-D
