…sometime in 1994
the office looks like a battlefield. Disassembled computers on every desk. The two specialists of the accrued network and system integration house talk about RAMs, storage capacity, DOS-based, Windows 3.11, Intel Pentium, Zip drive and QR code from ISDN, networking, analog modem, and transfer rates. As a fresh body coachbuilder and painter master and founders, I was overwhelmed with the hourly rates and the weekly visits of the system house administrators.

So let's move on because we are only at the beginning of the digital revolution...
