    How much would that be in today's dollar???......and we hold 100 times (if not more) technology in our pockets today without batting an eye.

    I hope nothing. I had a Tandy 386 PC in college in 86.

    I bet you were a whiz on Radio Shack's "Deskmate" software !
    🤗

    ....which, come to think of it, was actually pretty decent !

    Yep, load that baby with Lotus 1-2-3 (or its mirror version "The Twin" for $49) and maybe AshtonTate's dBase or better yet their Framework software and you'd be the cat's pajamas !
    Framework.....oh, that had such potential. 👍

    What an amazing idea! Too bad that didn't catch on...

    Man, that brings back memories of doing code for the game "Pong" on the ol' Timex computer.

    Exactly.

    You could be writing a document, insert a window inside the document tied to a data base , keep writing and the data would update automatically on the screen as it changed.

    It was awesome. 👍

    Another interesting software package was Q&A Write by Symantec.
    It was a document writer that allowed you to make queries using common English (after setting up a database of sorts).

    Put the Apple IIE's word processor to shame. 🤗

    I used to program with Q&A. It had too many limitations and I moved on to something else. I think FoxPro?
    Gustard X26 Pro DAC
    Belles 21A Pre modded with Mundorf Supreme caps
    B&K M200 Sonata monoblocks refreshed and upgraded
    Polk SDA 1C's modded / 1000Va Dreadnaught
    Wireworld Silver Eclipse IC's and speaker cables
    Harman Kardon T65C w/Grado Gold. (Don't laugh. It sounds great!)

    Yep, I priced a prime rib @ Kroger, $24.89 lb

    London broil this year, well marinated.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

    It is imperative that we recognize that an opinion is not a fact.

    Imagine making politics your entire personality.

    Mrs. H ordered a prime rib from the local Coop to cook for Christmas dinner, but I don't know the per pound rate. It's always expensive -- but it's also always incredibly good.

    I haven't thought of this computer for over 30 years, but after posting yesterday I realize I was wrong. In 1986 Tandy released the Tandy 3000 with a 286 chip, and that's what I bought.

    "I dont like spam"

    I used to like spam 40 years ago. I didn't eat much of it though.

    Well, a few years ago I tried it again. I would now bet 100.00 the can had to have had a seal leak.

    I fried it in a pan like in the past.
    The smell wasn't appealing at all. I thought maybe it was my nose. I sat down to eat some and...I think I swallowed some, but I couldn't swallow anymore. No way.

    I wanted to like it, but it had to be bad. It had an expiration date of like 2025 or something like that. I looked the can over and didn't see any sign of damage at all.

    I really liked it back when I was younger. :p

    I haven't tried anymore since that last time. :#

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    These were my very first introduction to high-end audio speakers. I still have them.

    I used to love this stuff when I was a kid, lord knows what it's made of, the proverbial "everything but the squeak".
