My webcam is back. It looks like chkdsk fixed the corupt directory. I may be time to replace the hard drive. :) It's a good thing hard drive have dropped in price so much. I remember back in the 70's ,before the internet was public, people set up bulletin boards which were reached via a dial up connection. With my first moden you could factually see the letters pop up on the page . Now whole pages pop up. A friend of mind had a board set up and was the first person I knew who had a 1 gb hard drive. it cost him nearly a $1000 . Now you can buy a million gb's for less than $100.What will the future bring in computers.At one time Bill gates said people will never ned more than 64 k of memory. I currently have 4 gbs and nearly 3 million gb of hard drive space. It sure is a long way way from my Commodore 21 with 21 K of memory and a cassette tape for storage. I should see if an old predecessor to the laptop I have in the hoard will still boot up and snap a photo of it. The heavy old beast has an OS of DOS 3. and even a built in color monitor and thermal printer and weighs 35lbs. I should donate it to a museum..:)
I should dig it out today and see if the 1986 vintage machine will still fire up. Maybe even snap a photo of it for tomorrows blog.
