u bring back memories my man. Used to work for EDS decades ago. I remember fighting hard for roller skates just to make it fun. But Mgt said NO because it would be too radical and we were being phased out for a robot.
Even earlier than that, I remember when was learning FORTRAN in 1979 and you had to issue Mount and Dismount commands before running the program, and we were testing like CRAZY. So the third day we get this call from the poor Tape guy who nicely explained that our tape was getting worn out because of all the mounts and dismounts he had to do, and would we PLEASE STOP and he would dedicate a tape drive just to us. Kinda funny how you can just be typing away on your coputer and not realize what you’re doing to the guy one floor down.
