Well I think everyone can agree ME was a disaster and 98SE was the last true
old school operating system based on the 9x code that allowed users the
flexibility to easily run true MS-DOS and backwards-compatibility for
old-school games.

Good catch!

In some (amateur radio) voice conversations I would occasionally say "give
my 73's to so and so, buddy", as I recall. I wasn't thinking of the code
so much, as I much preferred voice over CW (code), although I knew a few who
really got into code.

I doubt if I ever got up much beyond the required 13 wpm for the General and
Advanced Class. But this was a long time ago, back when Amateur Radio was
actually Amateur *Radio*, and not Amateur Appliance Operators (who have
little or no interest and knowledge in radio).

OK, I think we've got that covered (between Incognitus and me).
What do u mean Eye Candy belongs to you? You've got it backwards, don't
ya? Guys (supposedly) look for Eye Candy, not gals, right? :-)

Just set your newsreader to read in plain text and avoid html code.

Well, since I use Agent that's not possible. I don't use Microsoft's

I came in late. What is the link to the picture of a 1954 home computer?
I agree that binarys don't belong in this newsgroup, but a link is ok. In
fact, this subject is completly off of this newsgroups focus, but I'm still
interested in seeing the picture. 1954 was about 3 years before my first
encounter with computers.
Thanks,
Ken

It wasn't a link, but a rather bad picture.
However, it is a hoax;
