@Miniver My first ever 'computer' was of this generation, a Sharp PC-1211. Mine did not have a modem but it had a printer and a compact cassette recorder interface.

@Miniver The pipe is what really takes it to perfection. 😁

@Miniver I love how he's smoking a pipe, while hooking up his modem/mini-PC, in what I'm assuming is probably an airport.

@Miniver Funktion zum Anfassen und Vorstellen - gar nicht so dumm, Datenzusammenhaenge mal plastisch darzustellen. So einen Taschencomputer (Basic!) habe ich auch noch, gute Erfahrungen, witzige Ergebnisse.
Alles Wichtige wurde in den 60ern und 70ern erfunden, was Computer angeht. Da reicht 80er Technik doch voellig aus.
