There's discussion about his bass of doom, and the implosion of his upright (due to Florida humidity) in the comments in the last clip.

Two kids who did pretty well, 1981, Paul Allen and Bill Gates. I think they both scored perfect 1600s on their high school SATs, brilliant men. They scored big when the pair linked up with IBM to develop software for the IBM PC, MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System), something us old timers remember. What's a disk? Well, back in the day you actually had to insert a disk into a sleeve in your computer called a disk drive to make your computer do things, just like Scotty the engineer would do on Star Trek. Absolutely primitive!

<https://i.pinimg.com/236x/cf/b7/bc/...> They weighed 30 pounds.

IBM was an early entry into the personal computer business. An IBM PC cost several thousand dollars in the early '80s, quite a bit of money. Years later IBM got out of the personal computing business because PCs were becoming relatively low priced 'gadgets', like small calculators. IBM went back to main frames but Allen and Gates were on their way to becoming two of the world's most famous men.

Allen also owned the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers of professional sports. the 'Hawks are valued at over $2B. An NFL team is the rarest of commodities.

He also opened a pop culture museum which included memorabilia of Seattle native son Jimi Hendrix. It's huge!

  diceman: <Count Wedgemore: <Luke Warm: To conclude, HMM comes with pre-conceived notions to a rap/hip hop genre that doesn’t fit her idea of music.>

'Pre-conceived notions' sound so..intellectual, doesn't it. <Luke>?>

At least he didn't say:
Pre-conceived notions of lumpen proletariat milieu.

Sometimes Luke uses good words
<rap/hip hop genre>

I like that piano player with the big
glasses, Elton Genre.

  chessgames.com: <HeMateMe: <Have you EVER put ANY money into this site ?>

I will, when I see the game library maintained up to snuff. We are missing at least half of the Olympiad games.>

<Half>? Can anyone confirm this? The vast majority of the Olympiad games (for both the Open and Women's sections) should be in the database—except for some forfeits and such which had zero moves, or stubs with only a few moves. We'll re-check the official PGN files, but the assertion above strikes me as an exaggeration...

Folks post Beatles songs here all day long, and HeMateMe talks like floppy disks were used in 1832.

<What's a disk?>

Those things they throw in the Olympics?

You must be just a sapling. In the early 80's, I remember how the <Control Data Cyber> mainframe at the <Georgia Tech ICS department> actually thought it was still using <tape drives>! After displaying or processing some data, we often had to run a "rwf" (rewind file) command to return the "pointer" back to the beginning of the file! I also recall feeding stacks of <punch cards> into a reader to load <FORTRAN> programs into the system.

And in early 1980—instead of buying my first car—I eagerly paid <$1700> for an <Apple ][+>, with <64K RAM>, dual <5-1/4 inch, 146K floppy drives>, and a <6502 CPU> that boasted a blazing clock speed of <1 MHz>. Back then, that's what I <truly> considered "reeling with power"...

  diceman: <Diademas:

I find it hard to make an objective argument for prog or heavy metal being superior to the crap young people listens to today>

Prog/heavy metal are typically skilled musicians.

Rap/Hip hop, "sample" musicians.

Prog/heavy metal typically have powerful vocalists.

Rap/Hip hop, "talk."

<"sample" musicians.> I hope Nile Rogers is being compensated.

No slots for disks or even cassettes here. Although it may have been one for coal. Can't remember.

Riding in a Uber the other day and my ears were assaulted by the driver's loud rap song on the cd with lyrics going something like "I got my Glock and capped the m-- fkrs, don't disrespect me m-- fkrs.' No tip for you mr uber driver. What clown would play crap like this for a passenger? Answer: an Uber driver>

Shows you how much I know about rap.

<"I got my Glock and capped the m-- fkrs>

I would have said:

"I got my Glock and checked to see if
a "GUN FREE ZONE" sign was posted.
I had 2 busted teeth, so I went to the dentist
and capped the m-- fkrs"

Oct-16-18  HeMateMe: I've gone through the set up Olympiad games here and seen almost nothing by the biggest stars, male or female. I just assume that means a lot of games are missing. I haven't renewed my premium yet on this terrific chess site because the Russian Super finals are not yet here. I just assumed no one really cared. Yet, the database is the key feature of this site.

The baby Apples sound like late 70s, maybe 1980 stuff, the better IMB PCs were available by 1985. I think my first computer was a Compaq, maybe $2,000. Of course today it would be outwitted by a five inch cell phone.

Being a computer programmer was a quite a new profession then, what going to law school was in the 60s and 70s. I had a little bit of computer science in school, I remember using punch cards for one exercise.

hehe wow I remember having a "Telejogo" console game (thats why we called around here)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pong#...

But I have found memories of our "tech" from those days. I loved my cassette tape collections (sometimes recorded from radio, ouch!) where we had to fix it sometimes with a pencil to keep playing..

We had a happy time..

Oct-16-18  HeMateMe: weren't the early chess computers 64k ram, the Fidelity ones that played at 1400 level? Mephisto, Sargon, Excalibur?
