Keith, I most remember the look on the accounts departments faces, when they realised that other departments could do all the financial reports needed by The board, quicker, more accurately and better presented, than accounts, and the sound of snapping coloured pencils was audible at 100 Yards

I always had a good relationship with our accounts Department as they automated their systems ....

I once wrote them a little application to generate random "sorry we have not paid your invoice, Because ..." letters

They were broken into once and money taken from the large fire safe in the office, ( I had a key as we kept all our backup tapes in that safe), Investigation into how the safe was accessed, led to the fact that the chief accountant had a Key hung on the wall behind his desk, with a 6 x 3" label saying "Safe Key"

The only mystery, that still remains to this day, is how one of the staff managed to get a full sized Peanut lodged under the Return key on her keyboard

Oh I remember Lotus 1.2.3 that was the suite that was on the first computer we had back in 1998, Windows 98, the only thing I can remember about it now were the line of drawers along the top of the screen.

I think Nigel's picture is a good bit earlier that that Joan. Mid 80's running PC-DOS I would guess.

Keith, It's a stock image, so couldn't actually say but it does look like an early dos release maybe even V1.0,

The thing I remember lotus for was a negative, an official copy of one of their software packages actually got infected with an early virus, this passed through all their pre-production testing and actually made it into the wild on their actual shrink wrapped packages. Caused some problems, to locate, at the time as no one thought that the source could be a trusted commercial package.

They were wild times but fondly remembered
