I never had any of that stuff but sure as heck remember all of them.....my first construction job and first week on the job, I found my boss's pager....needless to say and had a pretty good bonus in my first check...lol

Nice post.

My dad still has an external modem like that. I also have a student job at school and they still have 1 or 2 typwriters like the one pictured there.

We still have that dial up modem stored away somewhere here, exact same model except with a different label (it's not purple). Reminds me of the good times with the dial tones screaming with the fury of a thousand suns before we could surf the WWW.

I'd have thought slide rules would still be relevant though, especially in more mathematically inclined occupations.

I still have my slide rule and its made out of bamboo. Hated those pagers. I'll be out running service calls and dispatch would page and then had to find a pay phone. US Robotics was the big dog in data for a number of years. I remember getting a 56k dial-up and waiting on my ISP to upgrade their side.
