MVP 2021 Ausman Posted April 2, 2018 MVP 2021 Report Share Posted April 2, 2018 In pondering sasdisco's issue remote over 4G in RO, he made this comment: 10 hours ago, sasdiscos said: why is every thing so difficult? I can't help but answer with "you think this is difficult?" Bah-humbug! You should have tried living with computers when, for example, just to get a simple serial port operational you had to fiddle with endless jumpers on plug-in boards, try again and see if it worked....days later. Or loaded your program from cassette tapes. Or waited 2 hours for that new you-beaut $800 (then) CD burner to finish making the latest disc....that often turned out to be a drink coaster anyway. It is all too easy for users these days to simply gloss over the levels of sophistication and size/speeds we have achieved. I'm gobsmacked when I see 128GB flash drives 1 cm². How do they manufacture that? Truly....128,000,000,000 little switches in that space? (OK you perfectionists...theoretically 128 x 1073741824 bytes) Huh? Who still has their W95 1.44 floppies set stored away?!! And where will we be in 10 years time? cheers, Aus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
