So watch and most importantly learn.

    Darn, I was just about to do an article on these old PSAs. It’s a good thing I decided to do a search for some background info & had this turn up in the results.

    These were something that I had long forgotten, but the memories came flooding back as soon as I watched them again on youtube. I can remember seeing them back in the 80s & thinking “wow, latest tech is cool!”, yet now I see them & chuckle at how outdated the tech is (floppy disks, just a black screen with colored text, no windows nor even dark text on white backgrounds).
