Have you heard?

Computers are just a bunch of zeroes and ones. 0101010101

I remember when I was first introduced to computers. I was amazed!

I wanted to know what’s inside these wonderful machines.

So I joined the military to see the world. I was amazed at how weather patterns are formed. So I joined the USAF in 1966 and wanted to be a weather observer.

What did I end up doing?

I plotted weather maps at Omaha NE using a XY machine on a BIG computer plotting weather maps.

We would then give this information to the commanders in our underground bunker who would in turn relay the weather information to the SE Asia soldiers fighting the Vietnam war.

That’s about enough info for today.
