What do we do and were do we stand for.

  • Merchandise, do we have that?

Yes we have two items in our E-shop you should have a look at:

a CD full of facts and of course our timelines, biographies, hardware profiles etc. etc.

And a 100x70 cm large poster with a full color history of computing timeline on it.

How to use the buttons on our pages.

  • Shop with us

Visit our shop to buy a CD or timeline of computing poster.

There are several reasons for this page.

  • We are aware that this site is used by many readers from all over the world who have English as their second language.
  • You might have searched for an item that is not exactly phrased or you do not exactly how to describe it.
  • Taking advantage of our search engine's reporting tool by finding typing errors and phrases that had no results.

So we placed a page called synonyms on our site to make it easier for you to find items back. This is an edited list and will be updated when time allows.

How can or may you use these pages.

No not at all, we feel we merely scratch the surface. But we have a dream!

However we do think our site is one of the most extended history of computing sites for free on the internet. Enjoy!
