But did anyone have any idea they had a desktop copier back in 1955.  

Those machines did not make "legal" copies however - for those you had to use a photostat.

Perhaps we'll welcome February with a record day of posting.  February would probably like that.

I put a dvd in the church time capsule last year. Some day, when they open it in a hundred years, they will laugh at the technology.

And the word of the day is: SCAPEGRACE!
Casey would waltz
With a strawberry blonde
While his SCAPEGRACE nephew, Clark,
Hung around the edges of the dance floor,
Using a bamboo cane to lift up the dresses of the young ladies as they passed by.

Some people are so easily amused.

I have finished reading a novel that was written by our esteemed BK, titled Rewind.  I enjoyed it very much.  I found it answered a great many questions (including a couple that DR Miss Karen was asking), while it is obviously a total fabrication and has nothing to do with the real world as we know it.

One of the things I really enjoyed was the writing technique that our esteemed BK used.  In the course of the story, he switches from one narrative voice to another, as different characters come forward to give their part of the story.  This switching of voice isn't as easy as some people think.  There are a lot of writers out there who cannot for the life of them give different characters their own manner of speaking.  (For that matter, there are readers out there who cannot for the life of them hear the differences between how the people around them speak, but that's an entirely different matter.)  Our esteemed BK, given his ear for music, proves himself to also have an ear for dialogue, with each character narrating their part of the story in their own way.  I was impressed.

Between reading Rewind, a heavy work schedule, and the usual care and feeding of DR der Brucer, I haven't been around here much over the past few days.

You people have been busy, I must say!

I'd catch up, but I've got to get to work.

Re: Today's notes...

Scallops and shrimp are not fish.  Sorry, they are not fish, although they both are seafood.  Scallops are mollusks.  Shrimp are crustaceans.  Fish are... well, they are fish.  They do not have shells, which both mollusks and crustaceans have.

The first time I ever took note of cell phones was during a Log Cabin convention in Dallas, TX.  While in the lobby of the hotel where we were staying, I noted to der B the number of people who were holding strange devices to their ears and talking to themselves, oblivious to the world around them.  I told der B that they looked like they were all suffering from some strange new ear infection.

This virus has obviously spread from Dallas, TX, to the rest of the country, and probably the rest of the world.  Sad, very sad.

Good morning, all!  I was awakened by the terrorist neighbor above me dragging something heavy on wheels across the floor around 6:45 am.  I'm having some coffee and listening to the rough mix of "The Brain."

This morning's a trek to Toyland, then another session in the sound studio.  After that, I need to see my doctor for two prescription refills.  I needs me my meds!

DR SWW, did you recognize my brief shining moment in REWIND?

Birthday felicitations to DR Kerry and Donald!

TOD: My first memory of a computer mention is my sophomore roommate, who was a systems analysis major.  I was always intrigued by car phones; in the 1970s, there was this pretentious queen in my hometown who used to drive his car down Central Avenue whilst talking into a telephone receiver in a poor attempt to make folk think he had a car in his phone.  I've blocked all memory of his name from my mind but I think he might have been in a production of TRIAL BY JURY that I directed.

Hmmmm.....first cell phone I remember....probably Peggie Castle's phone in BEGINNING OF THE END....and I think Maxwell Smart had a telephone in his shoe.

First computer was on Art Linkletter's show PEOPLE ARE FUNNY - it was huge Univac machine with lots of lights and punch cards.  And they used it to match people up romantically!
