Thanks for sharing these classic TV episodes. I've been hooked on Computer Chronicles lately, for reasons I can't fully explain. I guess I just miss the excitement of the early days of the computer revolution of the 1980s and 1990s. Today, our computers have god-like powers and can do everything we imagine with ease. And, yet, I find myself wishing that I could play around with a classic 16-bit computer like a Mac, ST or Amiga. I have no idea what's wrong with me. I hope this isn't my "mid-life crisis, " because I'd really prefer to drive race cars instead.

Wow, that dude moving the cursor from one screen to another was trippy. That's gotta be the earliest example of multiple screen display in the consumer market.

How that tiny Mac monitor could be used for that is beyond me. I mean it was even small back then.

This is fantastic, I'm giggling like a loon!

FTW, As an Engineering Student, I used an Apple Mac SE and Aldus Pagemaker to layout my University's Student Union run Newspaper back in '89. It was the first time we converted fully over to digital layout instead of organic, hand-based, cut and paste. The very next year, the Art Students took over again and they went back to manual cut and paste - roflmao!
