Ah, yes, to receive my monthly copy of Computer Graphics World and flip to my favorite column, "Ask Mr. Protocol." I also remember moving offices back around Y2K and taking the pleasure of sifting through the decade-long accumulation of CAD related journals. I especially liked the crystal ball prognostications...one in particular was the coming obsolescense of monitors on our computers; instead, we were to have 3D holograms of our CAD models floating above our desktops, as if malleable by hand. That was to happen 5 years from the date of publication, sadly, the article was 10 years old.

I'll not even share what I spent to piece together my first PC, let alone continuously update or replace it.

This thought always amuses me: For years people would remark that they haven't used one for years, but to this day, the Floppy Disk icon is a universal "Save" symbol, yet now to a generation who has never even seen one. How does that work?

Thanks for the memories.
