If anyone wonders where Information Systems originated, or how it evolved, or why it has endured so long, they'll find the answers here. From its start with Jacquard's automated loom in 1820, then Charles Babbage's analytical engine, George Boole's logic, and Herman Hollerith's Census Tabulator in 1880, I describe the emergence of punched card equipment, three generations of mainframe computers, personal computers, communications networks, Assembler, COBOL, VM, MVS, VTAM, VSAM, CICS, BASIC, HTML, and the evolution of the World Wide Web.

DISGUSTED WITH GASOLINE PRICES? Why is ethanol the best alternative to gasoline? There are five reasons. First, it helps our nation get out from under the thumbs of foreign interests, who are holding... More > our dependence against us. Second, Big Oil is driving vital national decisions, which is wrong, and should stop. Third, not only does ethanol burn 75 percent cleaner than petroleum, but it causes less engine wear, and provides better performance.

How I Saved $50,000 By Not Smoking By Garth Lambert
Paperback: $5.97

In 1980, I needed $1,200. I could charge it to my credit card, whch would cost $50.00 per month, but my monthly payments were stretched to the limit. Wait! How much did cigarettes cost me? I smoked... More > two packs a day, which equaled a carton every five days, or six cartons a month. In 1980, a carton cost $8.50, so six cartons cost $51.00. Viola! I had my $50.00. All I had to do was stop smoking. Of course, it wasn’t easy, but my motivation was that $50.00 a month. In 25 years, I had $50,000 extra cash by kicking the habit, which paid for five more computers, plus two cars. Quitting smoking paid for them. All I did was religiously follow a few simple hints, which I outlined in this booklet, and I was smoke-free in three months. In 2006, even if you smoke one pack a day, and if you spend $40.00 per carton, breaking the habit will easily save you $1,400 in one year. This booklet costs $6.00 plus shipping. Skipping two packs of cigarettes will pay for it. Is it worth it?< Less
