Re: That farmer...

However, when I was at Stanford, early one Saturday morning a Grad student drove to Berkeley on his motorcycle & came back with tapes of the over-night build of 3BSD.

Tapes? I recall our company using punch cards and transferring them between sites via motorcycle. Right up until on fateful day when the motorcycle hit a pothole and box of cards flew off.... I don't think they ever found all the cards.
