The problem started in the end of 1980 with leakage from the roof. Employees were then busy with an order completion of which would give them money.

  1. That “unknown device” is like an early computer mouse. They were used with graphics tablets. You would place that little round window/cross-hair over a point on a drawing, or on the tablet, and click one of those buttons, and it would enter the coordinates into the computer. Useful like a mouse. But also for entering stuff drawn by hand, without having to draw the whole thing by hand in the computer.

    (to enter a cube, you just clicked on the 8 corners, instead of drawing (copying) 8 lines)

  2. Ok, if the description up on top is correct..
    “the completion of wich would…” then it was not the leak that killed the business it was stupidity (or possibly intent) They could have thrown a tarp over the roof and kept the water out until the order was done and payed for.

    Re: “It looks like a tornado has been here. Somebody was looking for gold and other precious things.”
    I don’t get it, we see it here and we have seen it elsewhere. If you search for something, it doesn’t make it easier to find something if you turn the whole room upside down.
    It must be the pure joy of trashing things up.
