Would that qualify as a backup copy?

I don't keep a notebook per se.I jot down notes on any handy scrap of paper and then jam them in a folder.When I need one I know what the paper feels like, scrap of paper, an old receipt, a used envelope, the back of the water bill, whatever, and can usually find it in the pile fairly quickly.This is a great system, I highly recommend. Every time I go thru it I find something I didn't know I had. Like a treasure hunt.

I don't write any notes as tech changes so fast an it is awfully difficult translating tech speak into runic hieroglyphs  and chiselling em into stone is really hard work.   :wacko:

I bought a new stand for my 3 monitors and I also wanted to show off my Android Tablet as well. I had to modify the stand because it made the monitors too close to my eyes. Anyway, here is my main desk, which is one of three :(Posted Image Posted Image

Oh, the lappy is on my other desk just to the right of the desk in this pic. Here it is, actually...



Oh, and I'm snapping these pics with this really cool camera that Santa (my brother, actually) brought me for Christmas:

@ Réjean... Heh! Those are just the relatively current computer books. I've got books in boxes around here that go back to COBOL and the 8080A microprocessor. wink.gif

That really brings back the memories.
My first computer had an 8080 chip. It was a Heathkit H-8 build it yourself (sort of).
http://oldcomputers.net/heathkit-h8.html

Those days were a ton of fun. Now we just unplug a card from a slot and plug in another and it works. No dip switches or assigning IRQ's. Crazy!

I have a great book called the 8080A Bugbook around here somewhere. This is the processor we used in the training computers when I went to tech school back around the time Noah was building his Ark. wink.gif

Obviously, you are mistaking the 8080 chip from the mid to late seventies with it's predecessor the 8008 which is what Noah used to build the ark. hysterical.gif
