Ohio Scientific Model C8P-DF
As a boy, when my friends and I played Star Trek in the back yard, I was always Spock. The character held an “A7 computer expert” rating. When questioned about his qualifications during Kirk‘s court-martial, he testified simply: “I know all about them.” He was an expert with a Tricorder, able to extend its functionality using primitive technology.
In 1979 (I was 14 years old), my father purchased his first business computer. It was a state-of-the-art Ohio Scientific C8P-DF, notable for its dual 8″ floppy drives capable of storing a massive 275K.
I was hooked.
Deek Jackson‘s analysis of the American people is so tragically accurate that I’m embarrassed it had to be said by a non-American. At least it was a Scotsman.
Much to my surprise, I discovered that America actually has a health care problem.
I’ve known for years that health care was much too expensive, for reasons that are obvious to any non-Statist. What really surprised me is exactly how bad the health care problem is.
Its solution, of course, has nothing to do what the Statists in Washington and their sycophants the “free” press would have you believe.
