Right.  Time for some levity after a pretty heavy 24 hours.  I’ll even lower my standards to achieve it.






US$.  So that’s well over $10k at the time.  And to think we were so pleased with ourselves back then.

    I had a weird paper jam some years back. I had a box of ‘fanfold’ sprocketed computer paper under the computer table feeding up to a dot matrix printer. The paper stopped feeding, tearing the sprocket holes. I tried pulling the paper up but there was pressure on it. I looked down at the box and found the cat sitting comfortably on top of the paper in the box.

    What year is this, and what is “CP/M” operating system?

    • OT Richter

      From Wiki:

      CP/M (Control Program for Microcomputers) was a mass-market operating system created for Intel 8080/85-based microcomputers by Gary Kildall of Digital Research, Inc (originally incorporated as “Intergalactic Digital Research”). Initially confined to single-tasking on 8-bit processors and no more than 64 kilobytes of memory, later versions of CP/M added multi-user variations and were migrated to 16-bit processors.
