Re: The Computers of Star Trek

'Scotty picks up the mouse "Helloo computer..." (ST4)

To this day most computers make noises, usually beeping, when text is appearing on a screen. I have been using computers since the old 8088 days and not one did a screen display make a noise with a display (or for that matter, having text appear one word at a time...).

I do like the big glowy light panels on TOS computers like the M5- you got the impression imporant things were happening, you just could tell what exactly.
