Re: Aerotech AC dash switches

This may date me, but when I first started using computers there weren't pictures of any kind, it was all green screen text. No Internet either. Later my online experience was Compuserve or AOL at $12.50 an hour. Playing Zork was a major thrill! If you wanted porn you had to fire up your imagination.

We live in a different world now.

Re: Aerotech AC dash switches

It's been a while for me as well.... I started with a 600 Baud modem connecting to BBS both local and not so local.... Man I remember when DOOM first came out and you could play over the phone lines with friends...... Yelling "PUT DOWN THE PHONE, I'm ONLINE!!!!" and then being dead...lmao those were great!!

Re: Aerotech AC dash switches

My online was about 1992 so ya'll had me beat,I knew about it just being in the military we couldn't own our own computer

Around 1985 our neihbor a full bird col. In the air force had comp (it cost more than a new car he said)
We played an adventure game for hours on end

The white text told a story"you are in center of room with 4 doors" ...mmmm...okay "open north door" "it is locked"..mmm. okay "unlock door and open"

"A boogie man comes out and eats you,restart game"

And so on,we would have to walk to were ever,hell it would take an hr or 2 to walk to a castle

This happens a lot here

Atleast people don't run to moderator police

Kinda on track,was the switch just brittle like dried out UV plastic or did it actually look like a gummi bear left on the dash?

Re: AC dash switches + ancient computers thread

It looked like white plastic but I will say that the plastic receptacle it plugged into didn't fall apart when I sprayed it. Who knows what it was actually made of. Didn't melt so much as just crumble when I tried to pull it out.
