Update March 2018

It's been a long time, but I will try again.   Some day I would like to start regular postings, but not yet. Too many things on my plate.  Maybe in six months. I don't travel, so it will have to be mostly about hobbies.

Another attempt

Let's see what happens.  I am trying to write a new post, so that this blog doesn't die from lack of use.

Recently, in the past year or two, I have acquired 4 Brother Daisy Wheel Word Processors.  They were popular in the 80's, but have been replaced by computers.  My interest really began when I bought a Friden Flexowriter from the surplus division of General Electric Computers in 1971.  The Flexowriter was basically and IBM 01 electric typewriter, to which Friden added a paper tape punch and reader.   You could make a tape which, when fed into the reader, would reproduce the document exactly.

The next time I post, I will explain why I have 5 Brother word processors, 4 are daisy wheel, and one is inkjet.

Checking the blog on 3/3/11 and was surprised that somebody had found it.  Thanks.  Some day I will have to get serious about this.
