Long before I really knew what a computer was I was lucky enough to play Adventure on a paper terminal my stepmom had at home that was hooked up to Bell Labs.

For those with similar memories I recommend the Colossal Caves Adventure site The Colossal Cave Adventure page.

After watching friends with the TRS80 and various other versions of modern home computing of the time (early 80's), we finally went out and got a Mac512... man were we hot with more than enough computin' power to last a lifetime (with X number of copies of various complete encyclopedias, not to mention the library of congress as filler was the hype of the time...). Didn't know what we didn't know...

Late 80's early 90's, I remember creating some protocols for some state-wide programs. Wrote 'em all up and sent 'em out to the various regional managers via email. Took a while... at the time, we at state office had some state of the art modums... 58.8's... Even then, we were able to finish the projects in record time because of almost 'immediate' re-writes and edits (of course, some of the regional programs were on 28.8 dial-ups...). What a wonder that was for the time! None of the programs at state office had done that before...

Almost comical now, huh?
