I think you've got it there. I have a friend who was part of the computer revolution since the early 70. He still has old computer memorabilia around his office. One of those thing is sitting on his desk. I never did know what it was, but that makes sense.

Yup, you are right. Damn I remember the 8" disks that some used.
Remember the TRS-80 Model II???

Back when CPM and Unix were the only OS's out there.
