yah...the first word processor we got onboard ship was hot news.  We could fit a good dozen enlisted evaluations on each 12" floppy disk, formatted to print on standard IBM forms. 

It was big news because it was replacing the IBM Selectric IIIs that the ship had hundreds of.  They had ball shaped type sets and we used several depending on what the form was....

These days kids look at a pencil and wonder what the hell it's for.....
