Ain't that something... a bit profound...

I didn't know worms existed in 1982!

Heck, I was plugging away on a 4K Commodore Pet teaching myself BASIC and 
assembly language pokin and peekin. I recall having an intense desire for 
one of those $800 state-of-the-art 8-inch floppy disk drives! This was just 
a few years after learning how to play Star Trek using punch cards and 
getting feedback (move updates) via teletype printers (man, I wasted a 
bunch of trees in those days!). Those were the days...

oh. sorry, I guess I'm showing my age.... *blush*


I go to bed now... need rest...
