Seventies: Hopefully, I will get a favorable response.
Atlanta: It is a good touch seventies
Seventies: SMH I think I read about that in Computer History. Sheesh... let me guess it had vacuum tubes running it? lol Technology has leaped forward so much!
alt: the "old ways" worked Atlanta, folks weren't too busy to respond and were happy to receive information in the mail.
Seventies: Wrote it down ATL, any specific Rowan I would be looking for?
Atlanta: So seventies and Daviss remember the quest alt put yesterday bout asking the oldest family member? lol well we be da oldest lol
alt: Yep Seventies, I programmed the Univac 1107 by Sperry-Rand and it was 'vacum tubes' (sp)
Seventies: lol and here you are online.. lol
Daviss: yep Atlanta
Atlanta: I will post to surnames seventies under the name of Jeramy Rowan
Daviss: by the way I have yet to hear from the Burks person again. smh
Seventies: See its going to become a lost art. And I didn't even really need to read the guide, because when I was going to school they taught us and we are probably the last generation to actually have to write letters.
Atlanta: and the internet was crawling via nasa through the back alley of libraries there was no GUI lol
alt: Seventies, when I retired (1987) CRT's & personal terminals were just becoming the thing with AFLC.
Seventies: Arpanet and darpanet ok
Atlanta: My goodness Daviss we opened up a keg of pain
Seventies: Well Daviss you know how that goes.
Daviss: not really sure of that Atlanta. Youngsters have a tendency to be more open
Seventies: I feel guilty that I hadn't called my cousin in a couple of months...
Atlanta: Also Daviss in the olden days we [not sure about alt] would count by county the number of surnames in a state from the Polk and then mark the numbers on the map
Daviss: I know that some things can be kept from the elders but I would want to know and have a more compassionate view and also Atlanta the reach out was done to get more info
Atlanta: Daviss remember we are talking about the father of her grandmother who left the family without a word when grandmother was under age 10
Daviss: that I did
alt: with all of the technology changes it is still the same Input/Output ... Arithmetic & Logic with a storage unit.. the techology is in the microchip(s) everything else is the same IMHO LOL
Seventies: I agree with that alt.
Atlanta: Well then another new alt is the HP ePrint
Seventies: Is that a wireless or remote print system Atlanta?
