    Hi.
    Re. Guess what? It's my wedding anniversary. 6 years!
    Well done to ajbritton.

    Gosh how old do I feel at 57 ?, I remember when I first looked around the Railway Research labs when I got a job there, with all the number crunching they did they had some of the first IBM computers also a main frame computer that filled about five rooms of course card input and miles of 'fan fold' paper out put (I think I'm still using some old scraps of the endless read outs). Funny that must have put me off computers until I started helping at this school 7 years ago when one of the teachers said I could use one of the computers ( did not have a clue !!! ).
