The Smart Panda: Our Story – The Beginning
Our Story dates back to the early eighties, while most kids were watching Alf, playing with their Cabbage Patch Kids or playing the first versions of Super Mario Brothers.

Back before big data was big, The Panda household was managing multi-thousand name databases on this Osborne 1, CPM Based computer using dBase.
