    although I can remember the old typewriters w/ the manual returns, my 10th grade typing class was with the IBM selectric's w/ the balls, that was pretty hi-tech for 1974-75

    ha ha ha ha...

    I was taught on the Selectric too. So funny typing faster then the ball can return. Can you emagine no back or delete, had to use white out or if you were lucky you had the special ripon with earaser strip.

    I'm NOT over 50 and I remember doing that. Yes.. Learned on typewriters.. I really hated having to CENTER things on a typewriter. Backspace once for every 2 letters. And a word was on average 8 letters. UGH. the whiteout and correction tape were saviours!

    Thanks for sharing!

    When I started working at the bank, machines like these were the only game in town.

    Then modern science took over and we gasped at these..

    ah the joy of typing off the bottom of the page and having to do the whole page over. ...And putting the carbon paper in backwards and having the imprint appear on the back of the same sheet. ...And trying to line up a correcton so it didnt show. ...And doing it all late at night when you were so tired.

    I still have two typewriters - an IBM selectric (red) and an Olivetti Valentine (red).

    We had selectrics in typing class in high school in 1981. Actually, I have never regretted taking that class.

    I still use a beautiful 1940's manual almost daily. And I still ink my own ribbons.

    Of course, I also do math circa 1908 as well. icon_wink.gif
