back in '90 or '91 I used a very primitive digital system with a Hasselblad 6x7.


How timely. Just today I was sitting in a dentist's office when I spied a Sierra Club magazine.....from 1993 !!!! This dentist is on the cutting edge of subscriptions.

Within the first 5 pages were 2 ads that were remarkable in illustrating just how far the computer/digital world has come in 14 years.

Kodak was touting their Ektachrome 100 new emulsion and IBM was hawking a PS/2 computer with a 25 mhz 486 processor, 16 mb of memory, a 120 mb hard drive and a 10" flat screen.

In the letters to the editor the fee issue for being on public land had already erupted as the controvery began brewing over the fee demo act. The several letters roundly denounced the fee situation...and this was the Sierra Club.

Some things improved; some things didn't.

I'm so jealous.  I've always wanted to do Mt. Livermore since I first went to the Davis Mountains.
