	Glad I'm not the only one. 

	We had to assemble the machine (yes, actually soldering chips to a board :) 
before we got to the front panel.  Most of the young folk around look at you 
funny when you tell them that. A paper tape reader was a vast improvement - 
then you only had to toggle in the loader code :)

	The classic in this line, of course, is the cover of the Perl Journal where 
someone was trying to install Perl on an old manual typewriter. I'd like to 
find a poster of that.

Germans, of course, have no love life.  They can't, since whispering "I love
you" to your sweetie sounds just the same as telling her that you wish to
eviscerate her corpse and place the head on a spear in the front yard as a
warning to others." -- Dan Sorenson
