  • Ya know … for a guy who’s done over thousands of hours of computer repair (mostly hardware, some basics/minors of software); I have never known about the letter. I mean sure, I know floppy drives derived the A/B process. Hell, my dad & me grew up on pre-Pentium systems & before (Apple 2, 2e, c64, Tandy CoCo’s, etc). Using AOL for DOS & Windows before 3.1 was even a thing, serial mice & keyboard navigation before mice were even anything close to what they are now.

    Yet … you guys at TiFO are the best thing to happen to YouTube & my brain since Reese’s peanut butter hit the cereal aisle. 🙂

    God I need to work for you guys & I’d even do it for free !!!! 🙂
