How much is that?
« on: August 09, 2007, 03:02:46 PM »

Not a computing website, but "How much is that?" is an interesting economic history site (no, that's not an oxymoron!).  It will give the present day pounds sterling or dollar value of any given sum of money in the past from any year from about 1600 on.  The site is available at www.eh.net/hmit

I found one last week who had at age 21 quote went into the employ of some gentlemen in the wine and spirit trade, where he remained a few months, during which time he was generally in a state of intoxication. unquote

He was executed in 1798 for highway robbery.  At least that bit doesn't run in the family  :lol:
