[access-uk] Re: Technology Now & Then for Vips

Hi george
Has anyone ever thought of getting together a travellin museum of all this old tech and non technology? It would be quite interesting for all us oldies, (over 50's) and for all these youngsters (under 50's). Does anyone, anywhere, collect all this stuff? There must be a blind anorak somewhere.

A few may recall the Jotta.  Braille input, speech output and a tiny
on board printer.

The guy who developed it, Louis Wolfson ex RNC Hereford, could never
understand why he could not sell the Jotta in Spain.  I found out why
a few years later.

"Jotta" is the Spanish slang term for diarrhoea.
