Bob is correct this is likely to be 1956 not 1936.
Since this is about the Bizmac computer (not an apple mac ;D)

Looks like my typing before spellchecker gets to work!

Actually, English spelling bears so little relation to pronunciation the brain processes words as a whole rather than trying to decode individual letters- first and last letter, and the approximate assortment of correct letters per word is enough to read.

Which makes it a whole lot harder for children to learn English than a phonetic language.

I had very little trouble reading that. Perhaps it is because I am a "typo king."    ;D

Also, I can read very well backwards with full understanding of what I am reading.    ;)

Network Software Inspector - BETA

Discovering vulnerabilities within your internal network infrastructure has never been easier!
Highlights of the Network Software Inspector (NSI) BETA application:
*    Standalone executable application, less than 1 MB of download, no installation required
*    Provides all the same benefits that the Online Software Inspector does + much more
*    Detects and Inspects more than 4,000 applications (In comparison; The Online Software Inspector covers less than 30 applications)
*    Detects products that have reached End-of-Life support from the vendors
*    Intelligent rules for Inspecting remote hosts in seconds
*    Much more accurate than traditional vulnerability scanners - and without all the downsides (high network usage, system crashes, false positives, etc.)

Money
It can buy you a House,
But not a Home.

It can buy you a Bed,
But not Sleep.

It can buy you a Clock,
But not Time.

It can buy you a Book,
But not Knowledge.

It can buy you a Position,
But not Respect.

It can buy you Medicine,
But not Health.

It can buy you Blood,
But not Life.

It can buy you Sex,
But not Love.

So you see, money isn't everything. The best things in life can't be bought, and often we destroy ourselves trying!

I tell you all this because I am your Friend, and as your Friend I want to take away your needless pain and suffering...

So send me all your money and I will suffer for you.

A truer Friend than me you will never find.

CASH ONLY, PLEASE ;D :D
