Quoted from cottonm4:
Early 80s is when the calculator watches hit the scene.
Everybody I worked with was wearing these calculator watches. You did not have to bother with asking for the time; Anybody that walked up was flashing their arm and showing off their calc watch. Me: " Hey great man. Nice watch. I see it is time for lunch. I'll talk to you later".
I don't think anyone ever bothered to do more with their calc watch other tell then time.
To this day, I don't wear a watch. My mom got me a Timax watch for a gift one time. I had to wear it until it broke. And, yeah, it kept on ticking---until it broke.
This morning I open up pinside and I do not see any pictures. I get the white question mark inside of a blue box icon. Is anybody else having this problem? I cannot even see the pic of the calculator watch I put up yesterday.
So, is it a problem with pinside? Or a problem with my ISP? Or a problem with my Mac Pro that Apple would like me to trash because I am extending its life cycle beyond what Apple deems appropriate?
