Sigh. Radio Shack files bankruptcy. More nostalgia than anything for me as they really haven’t been so useful for me for a long time. Their demise is no surprise – they kept losing their focus. I worked for them for a short time in the early 1990s, which was oddly enough fulfillment of a dream I had in the early 1980s; middle-school Ken loved Radio Shack and vowed, “Someday, I WILL work here!”. I knew “the nerd” in those awful 80s TV commercials for Radio Shack was a lot like me and I was fine with it.
[With the Tandy Color Computer 2, then the Tandy 1000 TL computers, PC-Link, Deskmate, and my whole introduction to the Internet as it was in the late 80s, it was significant for me at the time]
And so I worked there for a short time. Once dream fulfilled, I moved on.
Always had simple dreams and achieved them all so far. Never was a BIG dreamer (peace on earth and all that), but I’ve always been a frequent dreamer. Achievable dreams I guess.
