Cry me river Scomo with your GrandMother. People look above but that communist Moderator he cut most of it out. Most politicians - they're full of dirt. Maybe 1/10 is good.

Funny - the head of IBM said in the 50's (?) he could only see the need for a few computers in the world ... :)

I was offline this morning for a short time, not sure if the problem was with TPG or the NBN but the phone dropped out as well, I actually think I preferred ADSL2 as it didn't seem to have as many problems, if a satellite system comes in I think I'll ditch the NBN.

Macintosh 1984 Promotional Video - with Bill Gates
This is an edited version of a promotional video produced by Apple Computer in 1984 to launch the Mac. Surprisingly, Steve Jobs does NOT make an appearance in this video. It is BILL GATES that we see extolling the virtues and future of the Mac. A fun bit of history
