Re: The reality is that the e-group needs your help

I seldom visit FTU but I have just taken a look and it's significantly different to what I remember so something must have happened! I'm sure it used to look more like this forum.

Are you sure they were plate cameras Tim and not large format film? LF cameras are popular in the USA, mostly 4x5" and 10x8", some even larger.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Yes, apparently the founder was a big fan of Deborah Kerr and John Wayne. They made automatic test equipment for electronic circuit boards. I think they were taken over in the not too distant past.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Don't forget Computer Automation Inc and the "Naked Mini". I worked for them in the late 70s/early 80s when they claimed to be the third largest manufacturer of minicomputers, behind DEG and Data...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Windows 2 was the first version I used. It was good, but slow on the contemporary hardware. It might be fun to run it on a modern PC, it would certainly be a lot faster than Windows 10! Windows 3 was...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Fine. I'm obviously wasting my time here so I'm off. I'll just sit back and watch the chaos unfold. Time for a Jameson's (which has gone up alarmingly since the pound tanked!).
