Weekend Reminiscing - Computing in the 1980s

Crank up the Wayback Machine for a trip down Computer Nostalgia Lane! Problems with your fresh Linux install? How about first building the computer? And then - oh, joy - using WordStar? as your word processor...which, in my case in the late 1980s on a 286, made WordPerfect? 4.2 with its over 4,000 bugs look very, very good. Enjoy!
