I feel partially responsible here as I have responded to the original UrsaMinor's post questioning his memory (no offense meant).

The reason I did is in this quote from his post:

"When do you think the first pcs hit the market? The first spread sheets, productivity software, word processors, desktop publishing, database software, video games? The impact of computers on our daily life was nearly as big in the 1960s and it was in the 1990s."

PCs (like in personal computer) did not exist in the 1960s. Everything went to hell from there :-).
