Helping of a Tory by a LibDem (acidentally)

Some history about my knowledge of computing, Z180s and Nyquist.

“1984 Graphics sub-system developed for the Monotype Lasercomp consisting of an input digitizing scanner, a file manager and database.”
“Brian Lacey resigned as Managing Director of the electronics equipment division of Monotype. He was succeeded by Solly Loredo.”

It started on 24 January 1986 when some 6,000 newspaper workers went on strike after protracted negotiation with their employers

Strange how history turns out.

 

P.S. “1984 Graphics sub-system developed (actually they didn’t develop it, I did. They just bought it and the the company and I stopped being a Consultant) for the Monotype Lasercomp consisting of an input digitizing scanner, a file manager and database.” updated. With an NGA working agreement as well, before the strike, on a computer, on the shop floor, not Editorial! NGA!

  1. Tory —- Lib Dem . Understand UK political parties but I not have knowledge of where there are on the political spectrum of politics there.

      • Read what was written about Rush and it is not too distorted. Not mentioned according to my quick review was that Margret Thatcher was right up there with Ronald Reagan. Decided not to make any comment beyond this. I do often listen to him and that is why I went to Roy Spencer’s website. For awhile Spencer was his acknowledged climate consultant. But have not heard his name for sometime. So think he learned what I finally learned about Spencer.

      • As far as I am concerned, what Roy and the others on the team say, I will accept as being the best available data. RSS just managed to confirm that their stuff was right all along.

  2. I think that
    Version 6.0 of the UAH Temperature Dataset Released: New LT Trend = +0.11 C/decade

    by Roy W. Spencer, John R. Christy, and William D. Braswell
    means that they have a good grasp on the technology, limitations, etc.
    Conversations about their data, collection methods and data availability were quite productive.
