I said long ago that I wouldn't join in forum discussion, but here I am. Hopefully this group is made up those needing help and those who have an interest in helping. My first computer experiences were with the TRS 80 models and then later the IBM 8088 clones. My first purchase was a new 8086 with a 10 megabyte HD. There was no way that I could fill that drive with data, but it wasn't long before new programs maxed out the drive, and No matter How big I increased it the new programs filled them up. Looking back I think I didn't really need all those programs.
