...with four 8-inch floppy drives. Ten years later, it was a Mac 128. And this week it is an iPad 2.

My only question so far (other than 'why did I wait so long') seems so simple, but initial searching has not found an answer. Of course I will keep searching (is the term "riffim" or, more accurately, "RYFM", popular in the '80s, still in use?).

Well, all right, with all due apologies, I'll mention the question here, but then honestly, I will go searching.

I want to make a long continuous video. Point it at the baseball diamond and record the entire Little League game when my grandson is pitching. Obviously there is enough memory (64GB) and enough battery life for 2 or 3 hours, but it stops 'automatically' after about an hour, and I can't find a way to control that.

Thanks, and glad to be here.

I have heard of "RTFM".... Unless the "T" which stands for "the" is replaced by the "Y" that could stand for "your"....

this is sick....we're bragging about how old we are...............nah..........another way to look at it is that we're bragging about how wise we are! :D

My first computer was an Apple II........and this is what we had to learn to use in the 4th grade!
