Beware the trainee with time on his hands and an Acorn manual on his desk

ITeC

Damn, I went to an ITeC too, all the way down in Cornwall.

We did our initial training on Sanyo MBC 555s, running MS-DOS 2.1.

There were a handful of IBM XTs (with fantastic Cherry keyboards)

I still remember when we got our first 286, with the turbo button! IIRC it ran at 12Mhz!

We also got used to using Wordstar, with the trainers telling us that if we could learn to use that, we could use anything.

Thing is, after having used it for a while, I got used to it and preferred it to anything else.

Anyway, we had a great time, learning ms-dos inside and out, programming in PASCAL, and it set me up for a life in IT. Thanks for the memory.
