Dr Jerry Computer Engineer Birmingham
During a Royal
Naval career, computers the size of rooms controlled the ships propulsion, air
conditioning, radar & Sonar and missile systems, but type writers were
still the order for office tasks.
Windows 3.1 operating system was released in 1992, as I began studying at Ruskin College Oxford, using a tax rebate that year, I purchase a 386DX IBM compatible computer, with Windows 3.1 and Microsoft Works installed, black and white 12″ screen and a dot matrix printer from Morgan Computers.
My introduction to the world of personal computers came with the purchase of a Sinclaire ZX81 in 1981 (now in the wardrobe) which plugged into the portable TV and used a casette record to load and save data.
