Oh yes, I remember well those study times! Lol at Richard!
Tom Wilson: It is so much easier now!
Our fingers remember these too.
Tom Wilson: Now they have to use the keyboard smile
Fascinating, Tom, how things have changed.
Tom Wilson: Indeed they have, Frank - I sometimes reflect on the fact that I've lived through the entire history of the digital computer smile
My word that takes one back to how things used to be.
