Hi! Glad to see your post! I'm back on my other LT.
Just taking it one thing at a time. We were at 96 today, but you beat us!

You’re 91 and just got a new computer?
You’re a rock star!

Now, those are not commensurate! My very first job in the industry was to design, develop and produce a special computer for SAC, and then a second one to drive a tabletop map system using the official mapping systems of that time. So, I cut my teeth on Boolean algebra and the card technology the firm had developed for the Minuteman missile system. We tried later at IBM/Federal Systems to get permission to build an IBM 7090 in a shoebox, not knowing that the IBM PC was going to be unveiled shortly on the commercial side of IBM. I am kinda an old hand in the computer world, but my forgetter has ramped up massively of late. Like which is AC/DC? One oscillates and the other doesn't.

Could be, maybe those rocks are diamonds, maybe clay.

Or, something in between.

Good night, sleep tight.
