Last year i has to move in an tiny Office, because of building works and had to dispose of a few historic folders. In one of them i found a Btx (“Bildschirmtext”, a proprietary network, based on telephone and TV, of the former german mail and telecommunication authorithy, abandoned in 2001) printout from the 1990s with the contact number of the Microsoft hotline in Munich. There was a direct call number for each product team! Routinely i asked Dr. Google, in order to confirm the periode i remembered, and was astonished that, according to the date of the last change, Microsoft’s support had as late as in 2017 to deal with “difficulties with accessing BTX”.
And what the hell is a flot line medium?
