Now that I think of it, I also recall in 1969 agonizing whether to blow $300 on one of the first LED watches. Remember the ones with the red faces? (I finally didn't buy it and was I glad when the cheaper LCD models came out.) But the first LEDs were so chunky and heavy. I knew one guy who had one and after six months his watch arm seemed disproportionately larger than the other.

Pro'ly not from being heavy, but from all the extra swing action his arm was getting showing it off to everybody. "Do I have the time you ask? Why, I'm so glad you asked!"

Don't forget the Zeke files (.exe), and config.sys/autoexec.bat (which the Marines at Camp Pendelton used to save in Word imPerfect format). Thank you, Word Perfect, for helping me to make a lot of money by fixing computer bootup problems created by your program. ;)

Hey now, I have very fond memories of using WordPerfect. It was a darn sight better than Microsloth Word. At least when something got screwed up in the format with WordPerfect, I could reveal *all* codes and find out what was going wrong, then delete that code -- unlike Word, that hides everything in the stupid paragraph end and doesn't let you see what's going on.

Yup. I still have a keyboard around here with one of those on it. It's a keyboard I once traded a certificate for a free dozen of roses for. I needed a keyboard, and I didn't have a girlfriend. I had a friend with a girlfriend, who worked in a computer store. Perfect.
Ah, memories.

Word 2003 is not as good a word processor as AmiPro for Win 3.0. Word has more useless features, and what it does with image positioning is like the Cr**sman router random-height adjustment, but Ami was much better.
Too bad Ami didn't succeed commercially. Lotus & IBM failed...

At a prior job I needed to write the user documentation for a software package we'd finished. I was annoyed at the task and fed up with Word and (somehow) made the company get me PageMaker.

I'll use anything and still tell you that WP was bad; as bad as MS Word. I went with AmiPro when it came out and still use it (v3) for occasional docs.

To troubleshoot WP, I'd rather use WP. But to create a document, I'd much rather use Edlin than WP. And I still hand-code websites and check out flaky emails using Note Tab Pro. Text editors are happenin'.
