Watched an old 321 quiz show on Sky this weekend, one of the prizes was a "fabulous computer set up with a colour television screen, dot matrix printer, double disc drives (floppy), and 521kb memory" How it's all moved on!

It's all relative...:-)

Doubling my RAM to 1MB has brought a big improvement.

You should try upgrading to a new computer (in 2000), from a 1987 AT (20 megabyte hard disk, MsDos and all), having had no contact with other computers since 1990! It was a bit like time travel.

I kept the first computer magazine I ever bought, a PCW, with business computing supplement, from 1986. I thought it might be of interest to look at later, and it is!

My database (a Dos one) dates from about 1988 (I like it because it's freeform). Among its system requirements is 'A hard disk'. Those were the days!
