Five years is several lifetimes in personal computing–or is it? The first "Trailing Edge" for 1992 (written in 1991) was "Reality Check: A Personal Quiz on Personal Computing," It featured 66 true-or-false statements on all aspects of personal computing and provided comments on why the answers might or might not be significant. In a blatant attempt to reuse old material, the author reviews each of those 66 questions and answers and updates the answers more than five years later. Which topics are now irrelevant? Which continue to be interesting? The author adds some notes on aspects of personal computing that weren't "on the radar" in early 1992 but that require attention in 1997 and 1998.
