I would absolutely love to see the Museum one day although I suspect I'd start feeling very old
I guarantee it!
When I went, I was looking at an exhibit of the SAGE console that was used by NORAD years ago. I turned around and there, in the corner, was an IBM 1401 in all it's glory. The first stored program computer I ever programmed for. Ahhh... the smell of SPS I and II, Autocoder, and stale coffee in the morning while the card punch sings it's merry song... I'll never forget it!
Tom macwave:... is it time for my medications?)
Hmm....I do have some nice naked baby pictures of him and his GF hasn't seen those yet

tom i love your little anecdotes at the end they always make me smile........ sorry to mention it here but been meaning to mention it for a while
Thanks for that! I'm glad you find them enjoyable.
Tom macwave:... who's happy when he makes other people smile!)
Oooh... I like that! Thanks for the link, Tom. Although there's no way DH will put it on my laptop.
(By the way Tom, did you get your Secrets name from the EDS ad? )

Actually, no. My Secrets handle (and numerous other web sites) originally came from the old ALF tv show that we had here in the states back in the late 80's. Since I owned a cat at that time, one of my co-workers dubbed me with one of the tag lines from the tv series as a nickname. It kinda stuck!
If you're not familiar with ALF, his picture is attached. BTW... the ALF moniker/acronym stood for "Alien Life Form".
Unlike Bolton which we all know is a palindrome of Notlob.
Tom macwave:... hmmm.... my meds seem to be wearing off!)
I used to watch ALF. I'm very old.
That is still a line we use at home.
I used to watch ALF and I loved it, what happened to good television.
Fortunately, some of it has gone onto DVD heaven.
Or perhaps Youtube!
My DW got me a set of the first season of ALF on DVD this past Christmas! What fun!
Here kitty, kitty, kitty!
Tom macwave:... full episodes are even available on hulu!)
