    Good GRIEF See Mos, mid 60's is even older than the 1970's. Now THAT is ooold :-O

    My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?"

    I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?''

    "You're both old," he replied.

    I was just thinking how easy the new-to-pics guys have it.
    Remember the first pics with the windows in them ? If the program wasn't working you levered it out of it's socket, sit it in the UV eraser for 20 minutes, program it in the programmer, plug it back in the board, and hope you didn't miss something stupid.

    Micro's didn't have eprom in them from the start. The micro was one chip, the ram and eprom was another chip, and everything was BIG. 40 pin dip micro, 8 bit and 4MHz was fast, with an external crystal and resistors/caps. Not SMD, conventional parts with legs on them.

    The very first eprom I programmed had 9 switches on the programmer. You'd read the content off a piece of paper line by line, set the 8 bits on the switches, and clock it in the eprom. If the program didn't work, you start over. Later there was card readers, it had holes in it for the bits. Now THAT was progress. A card fed through in a minute and the programming was done without the human error.

    We had a lot of time back then, but then, time goes past at least at twice the rate nowadays.

    Well , I had never imagined that I would carve out a living from electronics when I graduated in Electrical Engineering in 1987 with a major in power systems.Got my first job in the R&D department of an instrumentation company where they used to design printed circuit boards using adhesive tapes & transfer type pads.Felt like God when I painstakingly designed my first PCB.......and wrote my first assembly language code of 8085!!
    Formed my own company in 1999.......started using Proton since 2006 ....now I often wonder what would have happened to my career if I had not joined that instrumentation company which whiffed out of existence long back!!
    I strongly believe in DESTINY.

    I wasn't around for most of the above radio shows, but I do listen to them all the time now. My favourites are "The Navy Lark" with wonderful Leslie Philips, the real Dr Who, John Pertwee, and in the earlier episodes, the excellent Ronnie Barker as Fatso Johnson. :-)

    Then it has to be "The Clitheroe kid", with the fantastic Jimmy Clitheroe and the brilliant Alfie, who was also superb in the Arthur Askey film "The Love Match". Highly recommended to watch, even if like me you hate football, because the humour is brilliant and gentle.

    I was a very young-un when the Woodentops were on and Andy Pandie and Bill and Ben, and I think they were repeats, but I used to watch them with mam on "Watch with Mother". Wonderful times. :-)

    The Navy Lark has to be my absolute favorite, Ronnie Barker as able seaman Johnson (Johnsy) I have a near complete collection.

    Round The Horne is another favorite.

    Round The Horn: Apparently the BBC were quite unaware of all the double-entendres that Kenneth Williams and others put into the show for quite a long time.
