Re: Time machine
Yep, I'd have to agree. Although an amateur kid with a dangerous level of enthusiasm, I only knew 3Com as hardware cards and hubs.
My first experience of Novell Netware was many years later when the ortgainsation I was with went national with the databases (PeoplePlus if I recall) and got rid of legcay regional networks. That also saw a shift to 'high end' 486s and early Pentiums (all Dells) to replace the creaking fleet of various 286/386 and even a TI 486DX4(!) which was actually far too new to be consigned to the skip.
