Pros: Comfortable

Good choice for a daybed. The mattresses are thinner than a regular mattress, but they are comfortable to sleep on and that's the most important factor.

UPromise and American Airlines AAdvantage Frequent Flyer Program

Ok, here's a win-win proposition if you have an American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flyer account that has miles that are going to expire. You can convert miles into dollars in a UPromise college savings account. Each year you can convert up to 50,000 miles. American Airlines will fund your UPromise account with one dollar for every 200 miles you convert. 50,000 miles will become $250.

As an extra benefit the transfer from AA to UPromise will generate activity in your AAdvantage account which will update your milage expiration date for any miles you may have subject to expiration.

Joey & Barry in UM Computer Room circa 1976 or 1977

This is a picture of Joey Vossen and Barry Miller (two of the best programmers that I know) in the University of Miami computer room. In the background you can see two Sperry Univac 770 line printers. In the foreground in front of Joey (who is sitting) is a Sperry Univac U300 console terminal. The U300 was the console device for the University's Sperry Univac 1106. As I recall the 1106 @ UM had eight U16 tape drives (seven 1600 BPI 9-Track drives and 7-Track drive use with the University's Calcomp plotter), 8440 and 8430 disk drives, two FH-432 drums and one FH-1782 drum.

The University of Miami had a Sperry Univac 1106 computer when I started there as a student in August 1976. My first full time job was as a systems programmer for the University. When I left the University in 1982 to work at Eastern Air Lines the University had a Sperry 1100/80 computer system.

My guess is that this picture was taken sometime between 1976 and 1978.
