Jeez, now you're talking!

As it happens, I'm about to retire in a couple of weeks. Was planning to talk about IBM machines with 4K of real iron core memory, 8 inch floppies, hard-sectored 5-inch floppies, removable disk packs, and the 'power loss' emergency head retract mechanisms, 7-hole fan fold paper tape etc. And the time I assembled a Data General Nova..after two days of putting stuff in racks and cabling it, opened the last box (a big one) and it had a piece of paper in saying - do this first!

Remember 'bus and tag' cables to printers and the like - must have been almost 100 wires in those.
