A history of IT

Reviewed it on November 21, 2023

Learned to type as a freshman in high school. In 1974 the family newspaper bought a Compugraphic Junior phototypesetting machine. QWERTY with a lot of special keys. Then I learned the Lino-type line casting machine for letterpress printing keyboard when I was in my thirties and my Dad got ill. Then we bought a Compugraphic Editwriter with more keys and fonts in the machine. In 1992 I bought an IBM pc with windows and then had more computing power than the family business. Still have not picked up on Apple computers. Thanks for all of your stories. Pinelands Sam
