My Dad, himself an IBM relic (retired after 36 years of service), happened to be visiting me earlier in the week and I put him to work hauling my old Correcting Selectric II typewriter into the IBM Memorabilia exhibit at IBM's Research Triangle Park facility in North Carolina. That was a heavy piece of machinery! I had bought it at an employee discount ($876!!!!) back in the early 1980s, just before IBM announced the PC. My Dad remembers that there was such a positive response to that IBM employee discount offer that it kept the Lexington plant busy for a few more months to fill the employee orders. $876! What were we thinking? We must have been making more money back then. :-)
