Simple PC network
The term ‘computer hobbyist’ brings to mind the image of a lonely father sitting in a spare bedroom, typing cryptic machine-language code deep into the night. The wife is of course also lonely, which in the course of time results in the computer finding a place in the living room, in spite of its rather hideous appearance. The space which thus comes free in the bedroom is soon filled, at first with children and after that with a second computer. And with the second computer comes the need for a network.
