I'm guessing it didn't have as much as 2MB of memory. My first 386 had that much memory :) 

 

 

 

 

My bad. I'm sure it was more like 2 KB.

You look at a list of the top 10 Instagram accounts and realise you've never even heard of 6 of the people...!



 


...and they all look like your grandkids. 



At least I don't have to suffer that kind of reminder very often.

One of my weirdest thoughts is that, if my life had followed an identical pattern to my father's, I would have a 20 year old child now.

That seems so bizarre it does my head in!

10kHz-30MHz & 60-260MHz possible, for me mainly WX and Aviation (the latter not allowed to forward to the public by law) and some SWL.

There's no adventure left in the world - we are expect to be nice to everyone instead of marching in and taking over. It's dull. I feel robbed, really - like I was born 100 years too late.

So, I have custody of my grand daughter, 14yo. We go to BP each Friday so I can ATM her pocket money and buy Friday lunch. The server gal, about my age, says good on Dad for "making" lunch. I feel good....
