Unless you are into bigamy, I see no reason to number the spouses, but kids might need to be.

Cats are not known as guard animals, but mine certainly seem to need to keep me company. One will race the length of the rig to get there before the door closes. Both will stand & scratch at the door in a desperate attempt to get through if they miss it.

One wants into the closet (cosy hiding place). The other wants a drink from the faucet. Nothing to do with me, except the opposable thumb which allows me to carry out their wishes. Cats!

PS: one will open the door to get in if it's ajar. Both will open it to get out. Neither has ever obeyed the command to "close the door!" QT wins the intelligence non-competition! 😎

Mini-C, first class, Jon's first. With any luck, there will be many more for him, & his DW (or .5 or 1/2 or....) Ellen too. That man drove 2 hours across from St. Louis to meet his first mutant face to face! I feel honored that we were in the right place at the right time.

Stay tuned! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening, & look forward to meeting up again.

Cheers, and "Night, Jon!"
Well Jon and Ellen you picked two top notch mutants to mini-c with! Hope the rest of us don't disappoint you!

If the human mind can think of it, it can be built. There is no end to imagination. Think way back when the comic books had someone going to the moon... and then it happened.

I'm not into bigamy at all. I say my wife and I have been married 72 years, Each of us have been married for 36 years, so we have been married for a total of 72 years. Perhaps in a wrapped way.

Hey, flexibility in naming systems is usually good, you never know when something strange will come up. All of this naming stuff comes up when I join?

And then..

..I wish I could remember the model, but it was nothing but binary blinking lights and took up half the size of a box car processing the tapes off of an EA-6A and B.

Young whippersnappers.

I didn't get into the home computer world until 1980 and my first computer was the Commodore VIC-20, eventually graduating to the Commodore-64 then the IBM 8080/8088 knockoffs. Built quite a few also.

However, first "personal computer" hands on was in 1977 while working for Radio Shack, part time, and it was the TRS-80. I actually sold quite a few of them.

I'm not going back any further than that 'cause then Dave will call me the Dinosaur
Our first home computer was a commodore-64. Bob taught our first son to write basic on it to make little programs. He used punch cards in college when learning computer stuff... late 70's, took all freakin day to feed the things in and get your program to do it's thing, ...

And... now ya'll know how far behind I am on this thread...( I did catch up though!)

Troublemaker lol.
We have been down this road before. And I don't believe we made an official edict one way or d'udder.

Hey, how do ya think we got here in the first place. One ponder after another, leading to another, and there ya have it!

After us? You kiddin'??? It's all downhill from here, right? Eh? 🤣 😇

And, omg, no PoP! Martin mentioned it, I didn't hear, & none of us acted on it. Dang! And we ate, too, as mutants generally do at curiosities. I even forgot to share the secret handshake!

Well, heck, we'll just have to have a rerun!

Yeah, but that was almost a year ago. Hey, do we expect too much to have it *stay* fixed?

Where's the PoP?

See previous post. 😕

TC is on the list. Again. You have been warned.

Oh. You meant Jon & Ellen. Well, them too, okay?

X10! 2 of our favorite mutants!!

Someone correct me, is this possibly the fastest spontaneous MiniC's in history?

I just realized my calendar wasn't transferred or linked with the new phone.
Oh the humanity - how will I know where I'm going.
