Interesting to see they worked off page numbers and not URLs

A medal to anyone who can sit through the 'transmission' noise over the credits, lol

Remember the famous words of Ken Olsen from 1977:

There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.

I can't see anything but a grey box that says "plugin needed to display content". I'd like to know how they did it back then.

Dee, that's a riot. I almost forgot how clumsy it all was early on.

I sat through the transmission noise & I want my medal please.

My first computer was a amstrad green screen but I was only around 5-6 nice to hear the commodore 64 get a mention

That was seriously excellent watching that I'm just glad it's 2016

That was fascinating! My ex (girls' dad) was into computers early on and had a computer back in '89.

I'm glad I have mine now and that it's so much simpler to use.

Thank you Venus!
