WoW . I mean, between hunting and gathering and having to fight off all the
dinosaurs, im surprised you guys had time for computers. LoL. I keep
thinking someone is gonna bring up the Harvard Mark I.
I might be in a tie with John hobbs for youngest OLUG member.
We got a 386 and the first operating system I had was 3.1 with DOS on the
side. HOWEVER i was a little behind even in those days as I knew people that
had the 486. Had the 56K "upgrade" and had all the "episodes" of the
Wolfenstein saga. The era of the 5 1/4 was at an end , I had the slimmer,
faster, higher capacity of the 3 1/2 . You ONLY needed 13 disks for Windows
95. I dont even think i used 3.1 for more than a month or two because 95
was out already.
In summary, when I sent someone an email, I didn't get any paper cuts.
