Well JC, Lets see how many can remember this one. This was my first PC magnetic tape drives and all. And yes the tape drives would get squeaky just like regular casset tapes.

As a kid I can remember going to my dad's work and helping him on these... Typing in punch cards, putting the cards into the reader and all that fun stuff....

IBM SYSTEM 3.... Lol that's the size of computer it took to do a company's payroll, invoices, and everything - you could probably run all that from your smart phone now, at least a tablet...

This was my first Laptop, I had to write a program to start an electric pump motor on a time schedule and pull truck weights off the scales where I worked.
