Wow! This is just amazing Graham. I got in on the whole internet thing pretty late in the [sign in to see URL] a good seven or eight years after we had one and it never ceases to amaze me!

I have a feeling Mr. Andrews would have LOVED all this!

Hi Lights

I am sure Mr Andrews would of had fun with it but then he trusted like a lot of us to the good old fashioned pen and papaer, And lets face it how many times have we lost information as we have not backed up etc. at least in the old times nothing much got lost in the same way it does today :-)

But it did - an awful lot of letters, for instance, have been thrown away. I can't remember which crew mwmber it was, but all his papers being tossed in the garbage after his death was the reason Ed Kamuda founded the THS, to assure nothing more got lost.

Hi TTf

I agree personal belongings did get tossed in the bin same as today, How many emails from friends familiy etc have you backed up and kept. I wonder how many things like love letters like the old days are held together with a piece of red ribbon round a floppy disc or CD? not many I suspect.

But as to moist and I use most of the old papers of cpompany and business are still retrievable from somewhere unlike today when the paperless society tends to loose information on a computer or make gross computer mistakes ( and yes it is not the computer that makes a mistake but the inputter).

At least with pen and paper there was always a hard copy, most of the times with the computer apart from official ones there is only one copy on the HDD or a disc and most of the time that gets lost or corupt.

Actually, strangely enough, your e-mails are as retrievable than the hard copies. Manipulating the ether to come up with e-mails (and, suprisingly, some chats and IMs) is not all that hard to do - and any e-mail you have sent or recieved can be coaxed from your hard drive by the right technomage, as long as said hard drive has been overwritten until hard-wiped with by a powerful magnet.

As Clarke said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

Re: Virtual Titanic tours?


HI TTF

I agree in the respect that any information can be recovered with the correct equipment, I have many pieces of such equipment on standby for just a case but what I meant was look at history, we all see lovely hand writen pages of text in couloured ink with marks of the people who wrote them, look at todays work either a copy of a typed sheet ojn disc.

Sorry to me pen and paper is still better than a lot of discs and HDD. or inpersonal typed paper.

Oh yes - for one thing, it's one heck of a lot easier to referance if you know the papers or book well ennough - I'm sure all here have done the "hmm, it was in this chapter, on a left hand page 3/4 of the way down" game.
