    Hi Kerrie,

    I saw the doc on the kids and old PC’s – was hilarious. hahah
    I remember Bankstreet writer – one of the first writing programs- it took about 35mins to load & used floppy disk (the game Frogger took 55mins) That was when I started writing lol

      Ha, yes, I remember having to install programs like Office onto PCs at work – with a pile a mile high of floppy disks! It was a good way to waste an afternoon though 🙂

      Thanks for your comment.
