Re: One, OK, hundred, I have my doubts
OK, I doubt it was a hundred, but I don't doubt it could have been a whole box... My own experience tell me this story is not even that special. I also don't have anything against secretaries, however they were generally the people trying to do the most "complex" tasks that were not techies.
Generally firms bean-counters assumed that a couple of hours familiarisation was enough because the PC with a word processor is "similar" to an electronic typewriter... I did enjoy repeatedly having to go and visit some of them though, and benefitted from this on occasion as they were the real source of power in many cases.
