Reminiscing on scale...

Over the weekend, I was reminiscing with my dad about how he set up his home office for his job back in the 80's.  He and the other engineers/draftsmen at the new company all had state of the art computers for structural/piping drawing with CAD software, etc.  I remember the computer was a "beast" for the time with a 20MB! hard drive and people wondering how in the hell they'd use that. The computer cost around 4500 at the time, which is expensive for a good machine even now, let alone the 80's.

Picking up where life left off....

So, as I've mentioned before, I've recently come back to Atari 8 bit computing after decades away.  Currently I don't actually have any of my old hardware, other than 520ST.  I am in the progress of procuring some old hardware in the form of an 800XL and supporting hardware(possible disk drives/SIO solution/display/etc).     One of the goals I have set for myself is to *finally* do some programming for the old 800XL.  I did BASIC back in the day on my old 400/800XL, when I was a kid.
