Wow indeed, though adjusted for inflation it's not quite so dramatic. Back in those days I was living off £30 a week...

.. and contrarily, I remember looking at PC adverts for systems costing over £1K, which you can get now for well under that.. and you can get the entire .NET framework for nothing.

Weird.

I quite enjoyed Turbo Pascal. Just never had a good use for it.
