    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! :happydance:

    Tom :)macwave:... is it time for my medications?)

    Oooh... I like that! Thanks for the link, Tom. Although there's no way DH will put it on my laptop. :lol:

    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. :mental:

    Tom :)macwave:... hmmm.... my meds seem to be wearing off!)
