    No public Internet either, only a few dial-up bulletin boards in town if there was a computer enthusiast guy in town who kept his computer on 24x7 and his phone line open. Connection speed was 150 baud at best. You could dial into bigger bulletin boards in bigger towns but back then, you had a separate long-distance carrier with a separate bill per minute. Also, most people didn’t really have $5,000 for a home computer that didn’t do much, just some accounting firms. Incidentally, this forum’s software, vBulletin or “virtual bulletin” is directly rooted to the original, dial-up bulletin boards from that era.

    Aah! the good old days, CP/M my very first portable computer, the cover for the 5 inch crt screen also served as a keyboard, the bios and the CP/M ran on one 4inch floppy on drive one and the second drive work to store and save files and also store operational Cache which required swap cycles to move information from ram. the portable also had a builtin modem and an ASCII impact printer. The entire unit weighted 35 pounds($250). I used it for two years Then IBM made a deal with Bill (Microsoft) and the DOS based computer became the PC and anyone could buy all the parts to build your own PC for $150 + $100 for a CRT monitor.
