I had a neighbour who was into electronics, he built a !@#$% reader for us that talked to our NEC PC thats a colour twin 8" disk back in the late 70's we were ahead of our time. Then took the data and loaded into excel.


I don't think it was Excel you loaded the data to in the late 70's, perhaps Lotus 1-2-3


Per wikipediea

"Microsoft originally marketed a spreadsheet program called Multiplan in 1982. Multiplan became very popular on CP/M systems, but on MS-DOS systems it lost popularity to Lotus 1-2-3. Microsoft released the first version of Excel for the Macintosh on September 30, 1985, and the first Windows version was 2.05 (to synchronize with the Macintosh version 2.2) in November 1987."
