    I know the Quote being referred to here, but the fact is that PT Barnum never said it. Facts, stranger than life.

    Windows is still just a baby. I've been working on computers since 1964, but in those days, they could heat a five story building.
    They certainly wouldn't fit on your desk. lol

    I still have a bench power supply that I built back in the 70's, with a voltage regulator board out of a Univac mainframe computer. Some things just never die.

    As for making one's hair fall out,,, if that were true, I'd look like Yul Brynner. lol

    In 1964, I tried hard, to leave the job at work when I went home. But that didn't work then and it still doesn't work in 2015.
    Now, my job IS in my home, so I'm stuck with it 24x7. But that's OK, because it's also my hobby and my passion.
    I love making PC's work better and faster than MS ever thought possible.

    Happy Holidays Mates!

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    Looks like it worked...

    There are a lot of tech companies that were around at that time that have since disappeared.
