Sorry, still too early Bones, my first computer was a ZX Spectrum (with the rubber keys and a 48k memory expansion block).

Gawd, do I just.  It is important to note that we are talking about 4
MEGABYTES and NOT 4 GIGABYTES (that would have been about GBP120,000
<g>).  Loadsa money in the aerospace industry in those days, post the
R-R 1973 debacle and at about the time that R-R returned to the
private sector and started to establish itself as a real player in the
aircraft engine market.  Just think what GBP8000 (that my company paid
for that Compaq386 in 1986) would buy today (never mind inflation!).

What ever is it all going to be like in ten years time?

Apologies for all this nostalgia ...
