why in my day, there wasn't any of this fancy 'auto-auto indenting' I had
to hit ESC and type:set ai
to get my IDE to auto indent for me.
And colored syntax? Yeah, we had that. Light green for the characters and

And another thing...we didn't have those fancy Quake/Diablo games to play
to unwind. We telneted to port 2800 of sneezy.cc.utexas.edu and MUD'd.
We had to use our imagination! yeah! :)
