Remind me in 1988

I was asked by a fellow student doing "Computer Science" to show them how to use Wordstar to *create* a letter accepting the £13,000 a year job at Nat West as a programmer.

It is experiences like that which make me the cynic I am today.

Just for reference, £13,000 for a graduate in 1988 was in the top 5% of jobs.
