This Week in the Copier/Office Equipment Industry 10 Years Ago First Week of December 2004

At 12:30 p.m. on December 8, 1941, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt stood before Congress and gave what is now known as his "Day of Infamy" or "Pearl Harbor" speech.


In this speech, Roosevelt declared that December 7, 1941, the day that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, would remain "a date which will live in infamy." That particular line has become so famous that it is hard to believe the first draft had the phrase written as "a date which will live in world history."


Note from Art:  I'm concerned that the war that my father fought in will someday be lost in history.  Sometime in the near future there will be no one alive from the Great Generation, and my fear is that those brave men and women will be forgotten by the general public.  We need to honor those who fought forever.

No issues. The Ricoh card is 802.11b only so you will need a compatable access point.
