Ah, nostalgia

Still kick myself for giving away the old VIC-20. Had the datasette and the switch for the tv and boxes of cassettes with programs. Spent hours finding the one wrong number in the machine language after my son would spend hours typing in from the magazines. Then went to 64 and the earliest Apples and finally a PC when the son went to university and found out they didn't use Apples.

He now designs hardware and software for Newbridge-then-Alcatel-then-Nokia. The daughter does post-grad geomatics for marine mammal and fisheries stuff. I am proud. I like to think it is all because we spent a month of wages at the Hudson Bay store for that VIC-20 .

And Dad builds paper airplanes.
