I started working on computers in 1960 and have continued until my retirement 11 years ago. The changes from the analog computers and the later evolution has been amazing. There were no protocols when I started, except 115vac, 400HZ and 28VDC. I eventually graduated to a Radio Shack Color Computer with an amazing 4K of ram and finally to programming in Fortran a Stromberg Carlson Telephone switch billing system.

Yea, stuff has changed A LOT!  Played with an Apple 2 first and some early Radio Shack computer, then my room-mate bought an original IBM PC right after they came out.  My first computer was an Amiga 1000, then later an Amiga 2000.  First PC clone was in the late 90s.  The Amiga 1000 had 1MB of RAM and I paid $115 per megabyte to add two more.  My server today has 48GB of RAM.

I have looked into X-Lights and Vixen, but since I started in this crazy hobby with LOR, I plan on continuing to stay with them.

I have not looked at either and also have no plans to do so.

Yeah, I 'only' go back to the Trash80 / TI994/A days. 13 Ghosts (Trash80) Blasto/Hunt The Wumpus (TI994/A) great times...

My first was a TI99-4 with a loaded Expansion, 3@ home assembled Floppies. Next was a AT (286) clone with 2@40M HD's for great read/write database performance.

Visiting the Computer History Museum in Mt View is like 'Old Home Week'

Expansion .. is that what the additional module was that could be attached to the side?

Didn't it do voice of some sort? I kind of remembering it doing so.

I loved those days. Radio Shack had a magazine out that included programs written in Basic. I once built a blood pressure device that made a beeping noise and flashed from blue to red all depending on your pressure. The included the program in printed version. Basic. I use what I learned then on how to lower my blood pressure to keep myself within limits just by thinking today, to keep my Dr. from going ballistic. Good times.
