THROWBACK THURSDAY


I can't be exactly sure where or when this photo was taken but I'm suspecting it was in Austin, Texas sometime between late October of 1991, when we returned from our sojourn in Mexico, and mid 1993, when we returned to Arizona.  Hint: the framed picture which is the one I posted just last week of our 20th anniversary.  That photo was taken on April 7th, 1991 and we left Mexico the following October.

Computer historians will note the age of that c.p.u. and monitor on the desk and the green letters on the screen.

And longtime fans of Oddball Observations may recognize our beloved Chulapay, the (sorta) Siamese cat who climbed up to be with his master (and under the warmth of that lamp!)

The brownish-blonde hair and the reddish-brown beard?  I remember them well.

The computer is certainly a throwback! Good to see the old Catalyst and friend in that galaxy far, far away.

And a glass of relax and unwind on your right.

Is automation aging quicker than us or visa versa?

I wondered if anyone would notice that.

Yes.

Good old DOS! Love this snapshot of an earlier time...

That computer reminds me of my first real job in 1988.

Hacker?

We had a computer station just like that one. Quite the home office for you, in its day.

A computer may have ears and mouth but no beard...
