@Karen, Max....I said "a fleet of BIG old CRT terminals"....note the position of the word BIG....the terminals were big, not the fleet...... were you as fleet of mind as you are of wit, you would have noticed this :-)
@kfield: Wow David, maintaining a big fleet of "CRT terminals" almost sounds Dickensian today!!!
What makes you think it was a "big fleet"? (Are you projecting again?) What David actually said was that he used to maintain "a fleet of big old CRT terminals" -- which leaves us none the wiser as to whether it was a small, medium, or large fleet.
I'm sorry -- I can't help it -- I am an anal retentive engineer LOL
PS It's not the size of one's fleet -- it's what one does with it that counts :-)
Great story George. I used to maintain a fleet of big old CRT terminals, with analogue power supplies, and power supply connectors were my # 1 problem. The board connectors just had a circular pin, a blade pin as in the old AT power supplies w=is a much better idea,
And a good fix too, glad you got some recognition for it!
