Evening folks another great day in the bag a few updates completed so all tickity boo. It's my daily trivia time so D.Y.K What Happened on June 19th??. . It was on June 19th 1623 - Blaise Pascal was Born, Mathematician Blaise Pascal was born in France. Before he died at age 39, Pascal produced several important theorems and treatises on geometry, physics, theology, and other subjects. His most significant contribution to computing came with the invention of the Pascaline, a digital calculator that he designed to help his father in his tax-collecting work. . 1976 - Viking 1 Enters Mars Orbit, The Viking 1spacecraft enters the into orbit around the planet Mars 10 months after being launched from Earth. Viking 1 would become the first US spacecraft to land on Mars and the first spacecraft overall to successfully soft land and perform a mission on Mars. . 1984 - X Window System, Jim Gettys and Bob Scheifler announced collaboration of a new operating system in the X Window System. This gives the basic framework for a GUI. Currently, it is refered to as X11, R7.7. . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #computerhistory #computer #technology #history #computerscience #tech #computerhistorymuseum #computers #retro #vintage #retrotech #trivia #oldtechnology #techhistory #technologyhistory #computinghistory #oldcomputer #oldschool #informationtechnology #thisdayinhistory #internethistory #historyoftechnology #retrocomputer #oldtech #museum #vintagecomputer #computinghistory
ITALIA '90 WORLD CUP SOCCER (1989) Virgin Games Ltd. - ZX-Spectrum Es bien conocido que los juegos de fútbol basados en los Mundiales han sido, históricamente, malos! Pero con este juego sobre Italia '90 estamos quizás ante uno de los peores de la historia... Jajaja 🤣😂🤣 Ojo, mi apreciación sobre este juego no es caprichosa, ni injusta... sinceramente para la época en que se programó y comparándolo con juegos sobre mundiales anteriores como los basados en México '86, este juego fue decididamente inferior en perspectiva. Si bien tratamos de un "supuesto" simulador deportivo, la mecánica del mismo era deficiente, con una perspectiva de vista superior trasera y scroll vertical, los jugadores se movían como robots, o figuras de cartón que llevaban la pelota pegada al pie, encima quisieron "innovar" realizando un cambio de perspectiva al llegar al arco usando una vista de tipo 3D en tercera persona pero el resultado no fue ni cercano a la intención, agregando algo que terminó de arruinar el juego. De todas formas y como todos los juegos sobre Mundiales, son una pieza de Colección tan sólo por esa razón! 😍🕹⚽ #Nostalgia #zxspectrum #zxspectrum48k #spectrum #spectrum48k #sinclairspectrum #virgingames #italia90 #worldcupsoccer #retrogamer #retrocomputer #retrocollector #retrocollective #retrogaming #retrogames #8bitgaming #8bitgames #zxspectrumgames #spectrumgames #oldgames #retro #instagamerspain #rusia2018 #8bits #8bitsgames #retrocomputing #gamesaddict #videogames #retrovideogames #videogamescollector
🛠I’m changing the capacitors on one of my Colo(u)r Classics’ logic boards. The logic boards can be easily slid in and out and swapped with other models of Macs such as the LC 575, which helps as CCs are very underpowered and slow Macs 🐢 The analog boards on both of these are very worn out so I’ll be replacing the capacitors on them soon too ✅
PETER SHILTON'S HANDBALL MARADONA! (1986) Grandslam Entertainments Ltd. - ZX-Spectrum A 3 días de que se cumplan 32 años del épico partido de cuartos de final entre Argentina e Inglaterra en el estadio Azteca de México '86, el 22 de Junio de 1986, y en medio de un Mundial complicadísimo como está siendo Rusia 2018, es un buen momento para recordar este juego que los Ingleses hicieron para recordar el Famoso Gol con la Mano que Diego Maradona le marcó a Inglaterra en dicho partido!🤣😂🤣⚽ El juego rompe con el molde de los juegos de fútbol tradicionales, centrándose, esta vez, en el rol del arquero, el objetivo del juego es controlar al arquero e intentar atajar la mayor cantidad de disparos al arco que vendrán de diferentes lugares, con diferente potencia y ángulos! Ahora volviendo al "homenaje" que el Software Ingles le hizo a Diego Maradona y su Gol con la Mano... deberían haber hecho otro juego para homenajear el 2do gol de Maradona, en el mismo partido, con el que Argentina termino ganando 2 a 1 y está considerado como el mejor Gol de la historia de los Mundiales! 🤣😂🤣😍🕹⚽👏👏👏 #Nostalgia #zxspectrum #zxspectrum48k #spectrum #spectrum48k #sinclairspectrum #grandslamentertainments #handballmaradona #petershiltonshandballmaradona #retrogamer #retrocomputer #retrocollector #retrocollective #retrogaming #retrogames #8bitgaming #8bitgames #zxspectrumgames #spectrumgames #oldgames #retro #instagamerspain #rusia2018 #8bits #8bitsgames #retrocomputing #gamesaddict #videogames #retrovideogames #videogamescollector
Before the 1980s, practically all typesetting for publishers and advertisers was performed by specialist typesetting companies. These companies performed keyboarding, editing and production of paper or film output,

Credit goes to @alexander_as5 Simple colour sensor test Code with arduino nano and processing First how it works? The sensor has four bright leds which light up the object, then reflected light goes to 8x8 photodiode matrix with different colour filters, there's also one input decoder for colour values, signal of photodiodes is converted to frequency with VCO and with arduino we choose rgb colour values Now we have rgb values and by experiments you can make corresponding program for colours detection, then simply we can send signal via serial port to processing. #electronics #microprocessor #instatech #electronic #transistor #robotics #arduino #digitallogic #follow4follow #likeforlike #green #color #computer #diy #retrocomputer #electricalengineering #vintage #vintageelectronics #oldschool #retroelectronics #followforfollow #like4like #bestoftheday #instagood #picoftheday

Evening everyone what a great result in tonight's first England game of the world cup we gotta win by the edge of our pants lol, It's trivia time so D.Y.K What happened on 18th June??. . 1979 - Microsoft Introduces BASIC for 8086, In use at the time by over 200,000 computers with the Z80 and 8080 processors, Microsoft BASIC is introduced for the 8086 16-bit microprocessor. By being one of the first to offer a version of the BASIC programming language for a 16-bit processor and making it compatible with their 8-bit versions of BASIC, Microsoft helped move forward 16-bit computing. But perhaps more importantly, by developing for the 8086 processor, they soon formed a relationship with Seattle Computer Products, one of the first companies building computers with an 8086 processor. As fate would have it, in 1980 Seattle Computer Products was forced to develop an operating system for their computers because a version of the very popular CP/M operating system was delayed for the 8086. It was this 8086 operating system, which SCP called QDOS (for Quick and Dirty Operating System), that Microsoft soon bought the rights for and licensed to IBM for their new PC. And Microsoft thus began their transformation from a simple software development company in the early history of personal computing to one of the most dominant technology companies in history. . 2007 - Terry Semel of Yahoo Step Down, Terry Semel was under pressure  by the board because of dissatisfaction of his compensation. Terry was brought in to create a partnership with Hollywood, which really didn’t happen. He handed the reigns over to Jerry Yang, who started promising revitalized talks with Microsoft. There are a few that even speculate that was when the buyout of Yahoo began. Jerry Yang stepped down in 2000. . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #computerhistory #computer #technology #history #computerscience #tech #computerhistorymuseum #computers #retro #vintage #retrotech #trivia #oldtechnology #techhistory #technologyhistory #computinghistory #oldcomputer #oldschool #informationtechnology #thisdayinhistory #internethistory #historyoftechnology #retrocomputer #oldtech #museum #vintagecomputer

😍 This icon, embossed into the plastic of the original Macintosh keyboard. 👀 It also looks to me that the mould was made before (and not updated after) Apple decided to switch disk drives from their own “Twiggy” drive, which was very unreliable, to Sony’s new 3.5” disk drive. You can tell this by just how wide the drive is - Twiggy disks are 5.25” wide.
T H E U P L I N K (VideoTex, 1981). Take a regular telephone, add a color television set and a small microcomputer, connect them and add some user-friendly software. What you end up with is a close facsimile of a VideoTex terminal. . ”VideoTex makes interactive information retrieval a reality anyone can take advantage of — today! You simply dial a phone number, press a few keys, and watch the desired data appear on your TV or personal computer screen!” .

Evening everyone, what a great day with the kids an Wifeidge, after the debacle of last night all has been settled today which gave a relaxed day. . Finished the day with a takeaway an film I'm here ready now for our daily trivia, So D.Y.K What happened on 17th June?. . 1885 - Statue of Liberty is Delivered, Arriving in over 200 crates, the Statue of Liberty is fully delivered to New York City. French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi, along with Gustave Eiffel, created this statue for America to be a symbol of freedom and friendship between the US and France. Yet, it almost didn’t get assembled due to an argument on who would pay for the pedestal at Ellis Island. President Cleveland finally dedicated the statue on October 28, 1886. Picture shown is Head of the Statue of Liberty at the Paris World’s Fair, 1878. . 1980 - First Two Video Games Copyrighted, Atari’s Asteroids and Lunar Lander become the first two video games to be registered with the US Copyright Office. On a side note, I could only find one image that had both games – can anyone translate the German?🤣😂. . 1992 - High School Senior Wins Computer Science Contest with Traffic Flow Program, The Los Angeles Times reported on high school senior Kevin Chang, who won an area computer science contest with a program to improve traffic flow by automatically controlling acceleration and braking. Chang's program utilized an infrared sensor that monitored the distance between a car and other objects and told the car whether to speed up or slow down. . We'll folks that's it hope you enjoyed the post have a great evening bye 👋👍. . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #computerhistory #computer #technology #history #computerscience #tech #computerhistorymuseum #computers #retro #vintage #retrotech #trivia #oldtechnology #techhistory #technologyhistory #computinghistory #oldcomputer #oldschool #informationtechnology #thisdayinhistory #internethistory #historyoftechnology #retrocomputer #oldtech #museum #vintagecomputer #computinghistory

Good evening all a great day met loads of people at YouNite Southwest 👍, Back home now as day was cut short kids needed Mummy & Daddy. So plenty of time to get our nightly post out to the masses. . It's Trivia Time so D.Y.K What happened on 26th June? No well let's find out eh ? 😂. . 1903 - Ford Motor Company Is Incorporated, Henry Ford incorporates the Ford Motor Company with ten investors and $28,000. Ford will begin building automobiles on Mack Avenue in Detroit in a converted factory that previously produced wagons. . 1997 - Hackers Decipher Data Encryption Standard, Hackers deciphered computer code written in the Data Encryption Standard, which had been designed to be an impenetrable encryption software. A group of users organized over the Internet cracked the software -- the strongest legally exportable encryption software in the United States -- after five months of work. The United States bans stronger encryption software out of fear that it would be used by terrorists, but companies designing the software say such restrictions are worthless because foreign countries offer much stronger programs. . 1997 - NetPC Announced, Several computer companies banded together to help create the NetPC. A disk-less computer that got all information, including install – from a corporate server or the Internet. Basically, these would be similar to thin clients or “Dumb terminals” for work computers. No CD drive, no floppy disc and limited disk space. Cases were sealed so nobody could get inside to reconfigure the computer. Installs would be handled via the Internet, therefore, no personal software could be installed. . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #computerhistory #computer #technology #history #computerscience #tech #computerhistorymuseum #computers #retro #vintage #retrotech #trivia #oldtechnology #techhistory #technologyhistory #computinghistory #oldcomputer #oldschool #informationtechnology #thisdayinhistory #internethistory #historyoftechnology #retrocomputer #oldtech #museum #vintagecomputer #computinghistory
