I wonder what's the wheel for; is it their interpretation of a joystick or a Car Racing Wheel? :)

Did you read the part where it said "the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home"? Or the part: "With teletype interface and Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use"?

Don't you just love that kind of foresight? :)

Aha. I see now :)

You people in the states are so complicated :) Everything is divided to agencies and sub agencies and departments :) Here the police do everything, and when things get complicated you get a handy visit from the Shabak (FBI).

Joking aside, it really is an important job. Thanks for the info :)
