I was just looking around this forum when I found this posting. It reminded me of a lot of very old and pleasant things!

In 1966 I was attending the previous year before the last one to be graduate in Electrical Engineering, when the first "digital computer" arrived at the University. A few months before, I was approved at an IBM test and was one of the few university students to be enrolled at an "special" IBM class about IBM 1130 Disk Monitor System and Fortran. I was approved in the course and become an iternm at the "Engineering School Data Processing Center", that have just installed an IBM 1131, with the "fantastic" amount of 8 Kwords (16 Kbytes) and a removable magnetic disk with 512 Kbytes, plus an 1132 printer and an 1442 card reader/punch. Since them, the "data processing worm" never left my body (and my soul)... It was with a great pleasure (and some commontion) that I saw the films you released about the 1442 (the first "machine", to my knowledge at that time, to use, internally, an "optical wire" to transmit data (as far as I remember a cable of about half a meter, thick as a finger...)). Funny to remind these things almost 50 years later...

Congratulations for your films!
Regards, Ricardo
