Hi everyone, now that I posted a few message i figured I'd introduce myself a bit (not to get anyone bored too much ;-)).

I've been coding and using micros since 1975 and so I've seen all microcomputers start in the market, and end ;-). it's something I'd never regret doing again. I've had everything from Commodore PET 2001 to Atari 400, to TI-99/4A to ZX81 to the Lisa, Mac, and all that good stuff, right down to today's fast PCs ;-). I still have a Mac Classic (monochrome 9" monitor), a Mac LC III and a Performa 575 which I still use today :). I can program them all but I have the hardest time programming my damn VCR lol.

I have part of a very vintage newspaper article. it was a group of scientists' vision, back in 1954, of how a computer would look in 2004. Made me laugh to say the least ;-). here's the picture:

Hello and welcome to the VC Forums!

Thanks for showing that picture again. It made me laugh too. It's a hoax, but it's still very funny.

Enjoy the forums!

Erik
