    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. Ė St. John Chrysostom

    Your phone is faster than those machines now.

    Yup - I had a 300 baud modem that let me dial (literally, of course) into Sam Houston University's computer lab and be on a very rudimentary text-only bulletin board, and the highlight was watching a "movie" of Godzilla's foot crushing King Kong (might have my characters wrong, but Godzilla was one of them) in an incredibly crude slow motion graphic.

    I was thrilled when I upgraded to 1200 baud!

    Neither of us were teens during any part of the 80s.

    I do remember going to where my father worked back in the early 70s where they had the computer room in which some giant monstrosity used punch cards.

    The original took a bit longer until Bambi was squashed with the credits taking far longer than the movie ending with Godzilla flexing its claws at the very end.
