We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Laughed my fool head off watching and re-watching her...the timing is impeccable. We went to computers in 1979 and you could see that right-hand quiver ever time a writer got to the end of a sentence...took ages for them to get used to wrap-around text (and use a pinky to tap "enter").
I'm sending this one to LOTS of people including my daughter who's 38 and a son-in-law who's 35. They still have some of my old Selectrics for use when their computers go down.
Really, this is a great way to start the day. I think I'll watch it again...
I still remember the day the office moved from one building to another. In the trash were a half-dozen Selectrics, with boxes of ribbons and custom font balls all clipped to the little racks.... They saved ONE of the bunch to do multipart forms (occasionally). I still kick myself for not salvaging one. Not that I'd ever have used it I guess, but they were THE cool printer to have. (also abandoned was a 10 ton A/C for the computer room and a Liebert PDU. I could have had those also for the thousands it would have cost to remove. Missed out on the X-BAND satellite dish by one day. heh.)
