My Next Computer Upgrade...

The RCA Spectra 70 .



It's the same computers the FBI now uses, according to one of the comments posted at the news site Caption This.



PS. I could go for this set-up, but I think it's probably out of my pricerange.

I remember programming on an old Wang using dual 7.25 semi-floppies.

I think I did my masters thesis on a 7.25 semi-floppy, using a DOS word processor, in the hot computer lab at UGA....but who knows. It was so long ago. All I remember are the yellow letters.....back during that time Deux had that hip braided pony tail.....

As far as I'm concerned, the crowning achievement of the computer age is The Oregon Trail.

Thanks for that...now I really feel old. When I got my "Computers" merit badge in Boy Scouts, they were still using punch cards on some of the bigger machines. The exciting development of tape reels was being phased in...
