Using the Internet in 1955 Helped My “Girls.” — 7 Comments

  1. Telegraph messages? Yah, until I developed a bad case of Carpal Telegraph Syndrome and then I had to bring on another author…with a good wrist…she worked out fine.

  2. Can you say; mimeograph? Used to crank out the church bulletins by the hundreds when I was a kid. Same thing as a ditto machine.

    Punch cards? Paper tape readers/writers?


    “I’d walk a mile for a Camel” and “Taste Me, Taste Me” (Doral) Yeah, go ahead…I’m ready.

  3. Booger. Stuff from that era is ALL I can remember; I can hardly remember last week, but I can sing several cigarette advertising jingles word-for-word.

    But back in the fifties, didn’t they call it the Information Superhighway?

  4. Hee. What a groundbreaking pioneer you were! I remember back before PCs in the workplace, when I used to operate a Wang word processing machine. Damn, those were good times. So many dick jokes, so little time.

    Also: mag card machines, Telex instead of fax, carbon paper, ditto machines (remember all that purple ink?).

    Damn, we are really showing our age.
