Well, we had it tough. Back in my day, we didn't have these "modems" and "phone lines". No, we had to transmit data by steam power, aaaand feed the coal into the engine. Modems? Luxury!

    When I was a lad, there were fifty-seven of us sharing one carrier pigeon (who was blind in one eye) for our downloads. I had to wake up at 4 AM, feed the pigeon, roll out the clay, mark up the clay, fire the clay, tie it to his leg, and shoo him out the cage. If I got one packet back by nightfall I'd dance around singing "Hallelujah".

    But you try telling that to kids these days, and they won't believe you.
