    Hubby and kid are pretty much a buzz kill!

    You should be proud Elly even if it is at the bottom of the page.

    There’s a reason most writing teachers tell their students not to discuss or show their writing to friends and family!

    Bottom of page four is great for a first story!

    To them, she’s still wife and mom. She needs to go to her girlfriends to get the compliments she’s looking for.

    @Miserichord (Minor nitpick from yesterday): the strip is from 1982, not 1986. If you’re interested in what was available in 1982, this has a timeline going back to 1970, and if you pick a computer, it shows (perhaps incomplete) pricing information for models (and competitors) under that brand.

    But even that’s somewhat misleading. A 1982 computer with the memory capacity of what you’re using to read this probably wouldn’t fit in the room you’re in, and that doesn’t include the space needed for the cooling technology. It cost a lot more than $5,000.

    …that’s it Elly – give yourself a thumbs up – sometimes you’re the only one who will!

    Backin that era I heard it said “To duplicate the human brain, it would take a computer the size of the Empire State Building, would require all the water flowing over the Niagra Falls to cool and still not be able to determine what you should have for breakfast”.

    Sometimes when people simply shrug on something good for the family member, they do this kind of act.

    That was before Moores Law was proven – ie computing power would double every 18 months. Recently I saw a photo of a machine being loaded aboard an air freighter. It was about 5 X 5X 7 ft and the capition (1957) was that it was a 10 megabyte hard drive!
