All the computer I’ll ever need

mac.pngSpeaking of 1980s computer technology, I wrote my thesis for my Master’s degree on the first Macintosh computer, which came out in 1984. It had an internal 3.5 inch floppy drive, and no hard drive. I remember thinking, “I can write a report, edit it, and even draw pictures. What else would I ever want to do?” And I could do it with style; the PC guys in the office were staring at green or amber text on their little screens. I guess I can do more on my present PC laptop or iMac desktop, but that first Mac (it wasn’t mine, it was the Geology department’s) was wonderful.

Grace and Peace
