a few years

Post by DX » Tue Apr 17, 2007 8:02 pm

I been working on computers and networks now for a living for 17 years though I used to dink around with Atari and Apple computers before that.

I'm good with systems and trouble shooting all kinds of problems. The only computer that I never got to play with was a TI/99 I might just have to get one off of e-bay just so I can say I did someday. I have had the Sinclair and Commodore Pets.

OH well anyways just a little history there.

Geez, I thought I was old with a Vic20 and a tape drive... Does an HP 1000 series, Data General MV9000, or a DEC PDP-11/20 count? :)

Haha, tape drives...my mom works for a company that creates backups on 200 gig tape drives and makes the employees take those drives home in case of a fire at the office. Ive always been curious how long it would take to back up 200 gigs of data on a tape drive.

LOL tape drives... I remember how fast the Coleco Adam's tape drive was compared to the Atari and thought it was so fast that it would be at least a few years before anything would touch it.

OH those were the days.
