The time machine

Looking for some old papers the other day, I came across this picture

I imagine that it dates from 1984/5, judging by the equipment. That's me in the accountancy office, typing data into the keyboard/printer combination that we had. In a few years' time, we will have progressed to screens with keyboards, then to having our own server.

Looking at it reminds me of a similar picture: Bill Gates from at least a decade earlier, typing into a similar machine whilst still at school. Compare where he is today and where I am.
