    When I started my studies, Monday after the last World War , we used DEC mainframes or minicomputers as they were called, with VAX/VMS. The terminals we used were all dumb, no CPU, no nothing except the display and keyboard which were connected to mainframe.
    And that's why Cloud computing isn't all that new. Back to PC's connecting to a Server (sans the 300 baud modem).

    Those were interesting times - dropped connections, rewriting pieces of code that weren't saved (not as bad as dropping a stack of punch cards), listening to customers and bosses complain that it's taking too long - just get it done!

    Things are more stable now and much, much faster. The underlying issues with a server being the linchpin still exist of course, unless the server is local (even then if the network is the linchpin). and yet ... customers and bosses still complain that it's taking too long

    We'll see how this round of Centralized computing goes. It's a great concept and offers opportunities anew.

    It's really funny to think back, how the computing and especially the hardware and ways to do things were then. I remember writing a reader's letter to a Finnish computing magazine, one of the first in my country, somewhere early 80's and complaining about the equipment manufacturers only targeting the companies and forgetting us normal users, cause of my complaints being that when I bought my first hard drive I had to buy "this gigantic 10 MB drive I will never need even the half of its capacity", requesting "reasonably sized (2 to 5 MB) hard drives" for consumers. No, it's not a typo, I really mean a 10 MB hard drive!

    Yeah, 300 baud modem, my first one was Pocket modem for Atari 400. Could not afford one for myself at the beginning but "inherited" couple of 20MB MFM disks when I changed them for larger ones on our server at the factory, adapted them to my Atari ST and archived all diskettes on them.
    We also had few dumb terminals connected to IBM Mini 10 well into '90s. Funny thing also happened when data CD came out, 700 MB and HDDs were up to 150 MB, everybody thought HDDs are going to become obsolete or used for system and booting only, something akin to when SSDs came out.

    Kari,
    I have two 19GB refurbs, thanks to DBAN, that I will let go today at half the price you paid for that 10GB drive
    I also have a refurb Caviar drive, but that one is only 8GB so I could let it go much cheaper
    Let me know if you are interested

    When I started my studies, Monday after the last World War , we used DEC mainframes or minicomputers as they were called, with VAX/VMS. The coding was done in Cobol or Fortran. The terminals we used were all dumb, no CPU, no nothing except the display and keyboard which were connected to mainframe.

    Thinking it now it is amazing how we managed to connect to the DEC mainframe at school / university from home using the first IBM PCs and a 300 baud modem, but that we did; in fact, one of the courses I had in early 80's was "work from home" (my free translation from Finnish) in which we had to stay home a day a week and do all the studying using the remote connection over the phone line to school computer. If you had to ask the professor something which came not clear using the "online" conversation tools, you had to disconnect the IBM from the phone line, call the professor, and then afterwards armed with new set of instructions make the IBM call the school again (nobody had two lines back then, at least not in Finland).
    I did some stuff on a Vax at the time they were powerful. I learned on a Trash 80 back in 1982.
