As the first company to place the Bible text on diskettes, BRS engineered a method of connecting an Apple IIe personal computer to a mainframe computer. They were able to transfer the Bible text from computer tapes, used by publishers of the printed Bible, to over 40 diskettes. Compression algorithms were developed to reduce the storage to 8 disks and search logic allowed users to search the entire Bible in one hour, a significant achievement in those days. Before IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) included hard drives in their PCs, BRS hired Michael Dell to install a hard drive in their computer. This allowed for new search techniques to search the entire Bible in seconds. Now, with faster computers and superior search technology, searching the Bible for anything is instantaneous.

It helps me to study more and gain a deeper understanding of the Bible." Mr. Colley has been a customer for over 22 years and started on the TRS See traffic engineering methods.
