The Computer Age .... 1985.
I have this Time-Life book called Computer Basics.
I liked the idea of computers as soon as I heard about them.
My first job at the Post and Courier involved using a computer to answer queries people made by phone. We called it InfoLine.
Our slogan back in 1998 was "You can't be at your computer all the time, but you always can get to a phone." Pretty catchy, huh?
The book said that it all was based on "ones and zeroes" and showed Armstrong's 1969 message sent from machine to machine to earth saying "That's one small step for a man..."
What triggered all this was noting I had four(4) VCRs sitting in my basement shop.
Upstairs I counted four more.
Two were VCR/DVD combo machines.
(Click on the scanned photos for more detail.
I should note these should be credited to Time-Life.
I hereby credit that source.
They probably can track what I did.
With a computer.
