For the third consecutive year, the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with American Express to bring Small Business Saturday to the Hudson Valley. Celebrated on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday is dedicated to supporting the local businesses that give our neighborhoods character and make our home special.
When I was in High School at John Jay from 1974-1979, I took three computer classes: APL, Fortran, and BASIC. The computers in the entire High School consisted of two DECwriter printer, keyboard terminals with 300 baud modems. We'd dial the phone number of ERIE One BOCES on an ordinary telephone and hear the whistle and put the phone into the acoustic coupler modem and we were off to using the mainframe.
