@brothersthree went to college and during his time their he became familiar with computers and took an interest in them. He decided to take some classes in which he would have to rent time on the mainframe to complete his assignments. The access to the mainframe was limited based on seats and scheduling. Most of the scheduling was taken up due to those advanced further in their collegiate courses. The times that were available were often during late hours of the night or early in the morning hours.
Then a telephone line or modem access was made available to the mainframe, again this was limited to number of connections but alleviated some of the congestion. I am not sure if at this time or before he purchased a Kaypro II computer.
