Speaking of the Apple II
AppleWorks was an excellent example of the days when changing the length of a 
field required the entire database to be picked up and layed back down again.

And if you didn't have enough room to do that, you had to write it all to 35 
floppy disks and then reload them.

In my first programming class in high school (on apple IIe's) we liked to
use G$ (with the $ pronounced as string)....

Sort of a carry-over from VB when a string was given a variable name with a
'$' in it, usually at the end, or the beginning.  Habits die hard.  :-)
