Re: Too bad India Business Machine has gotten rid of anyone

The model 20 was introduced 55 years ago

One of the CPU units was made in 1965 - the year I was born! And it was another 12 years after that that I first got to play with a computer (a 4-bit single board one - from memory it had very low memory (256 bytes?) and a 8-digit LED display..

Further duckduckgo-ing reveals it was a MK14:

After playing with that for a year or so we upgraded to a Nascom 1 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nascom_(computer_kit)).

Now I feel old(er).
