    Thanks for that! It was fascinating.

    I went to uni the year after that report to study Computing (punch cards - the first DOS Pcs came in during my final year)

    I persuaded both my teenagers to watch and their jaws dropped, particularly at the modem and the download times!

    It has, of course, confirmed to them that I am a fossil!
