OOOoooooo, a GRID!  I used to lust after them in PC Magazine.  

I can remember my first computer class and typing punch cards.  
Annoying as h*ll.  Ole Miss had 2 as in TWO telex terminals then.  
Punch cards were such a pain that I used to set my alarm clock for 4 
am and go use the terminals.  

Class was Fortran.  Now those were the days, the bad old days.
