    I'm Nat, 80 yrs old (but don't try to beat me at 9-ball). I live in rural Northern Arkansas near a town called Oxford....love it here.

    As I said, I have a good pool table. My other interest is photography (digital these days) I take a lot of photos of my world here.

    I've been busy with 'puters since the Model 1. I remember going into Radio Shack and asking what one did with a compter like the one on the counter.

    The guy said "Imaging you want to buy a home...gimmme a figure."

    I did, and he entered it. almost imediatly the screen showed the monthly charge.

    I bought it.

    Nat

    Welcome to the board. I was just having a conversation the other day about what computers today can do compared to the first models.

    basically all they can do is add two numbers together and get a result. Of course modern machines do it blindingly fast!

    Hello Nat, and welcome to the forums, good to have you here.

    Do you publish any of your photos online? I'd love to see them as I'm a fellow Photographer/Filmmaker.
