I was not under the impression we were trying to depict any type of "scene" but rather show the machines with the common peripherals they we're used with if we have them in the warehouse. Not the environment in which they were used.
If I'm wrong please correct me.
I would think a "this machine was often located in the machine room while the terminals...like this one.....would be at blah blah blah" and perhaps a picture or poster in addition to the hardware to give an example of the "typical" working environment.
As for the "Google" comment in the subsequent email, why bother having a list populated with people that actually used/worked on (some or all) of these machines in real life if when queried the response is "Google."??
Where's that roll eyes emoji when you need it? ;-)
