  1. Was an early adopter and worked in an office of a large corp which trained us “girls” in the new tech as each installment arrived. I still have my original personal–a Wang– in the closet. Can’t bear to junk him…my own precious Mr. Greenscreen…on whose still bootable CPU early versions of my novels reside.
