1985! Wow!! In 1985 we were still typing articles for the school newspaper on IBM Selectric typewriters. I wrote my first paper on a borrowed word processor (remember those?) in Fall 1988 and bought my first computer in 1990 with external 5 1/4" drive and an Okidata 9-pin dot matrix printer for $3100. That 80MB hard drive was "more than I would ever need" - standard was 60MB. Now I save files that are larger than that.
