Re: Those Hungarians all say the darndest things...

You are hereby charged that on the 28th day of May, 1970, you did willfully, unlawfully, and with malice of forethought, publish an alleged English-Hungarian phrase book with intent to cause a breach of the peace. How do you plead?

Re: Screens

Similar to the Mark/Sense system was the IBM Port-A-Punch machine, cards but with real holes created by hand via semi punched holes and a stylus (plus a mat with holes in a plastic holder), 40 columns only, any denser an I suspect adjacent un punched holes would fall out. I still remember the codes.

Graduated to the hand keypunch card machine and then luxury... the IBM 029 Keypunch. (Woo Hoo)

Still hate vi though... (came to it after Emacs, sorry, no contest)
