Re: Wouldn't have happened in my day

At university and in my first job (also at a uni) is was normal for "normal" undergraduates and staff to log in via telnet* and use Pine. I suspect that if you showed them a terminal now they'd refuse to use it as it's "too hard".

*Showing my age here, wasn't it nice to not have to care about security as much
