hehe, 20 years ago, dear me, I was still using a typewriter then, and no
it wasnt electric. We had computers on the wards that I was on, but
nurses werent allowed to go near them, lol.
You should put together a time line of all the pc's you have had, I
would think it would be fascinating to read about. Genuine thought
there. Some of the machines you have mentioned mean nothing to me.
Ah, I doubt I would ever get to own one myself, just way too expensive,
but having touch screens would make things sooooo much easier. I could
really get to like one of those. The iPad comes close, but even that is
too expensive for me.
