  3. Yes, I would have liked more frames as well. Perhaps they're worried
    about server bandwidth! <G> I wonder whether they used an auto-timer.
    Does the D3S have that?

    Cheers,

    Please, don't be so enigmatic! What does "s/t/r/" stand for?

    I thought you would remember command-line editors - it stands for "swap"
    "t" for "r", i.e. ate => are

    Cheers,

    swap would imply are => ate as well.

    Not quite, as my "computing" experience only dates to 1995; I started out,
    with Windows 3.1/DOS 6.2.

    In fact, I never could get the hang of the Unix-based programs (which ran
    in Windows), during my early days on the Internet (Jan.-Feb., 1996). They
    were employed, to access "Bulliten Board Systems" (BBBes), and I despised
    their bewildering "command-line" interfaces.

    Back in the late 1960's serial lines running at 110/300 baud (i.e. 11 or
    30 characters per second) were typical, so economy of characters was
    essential! For graphics you likely had to visit the computer itself.....
    Here's a typical remote I/O device of the period:

  13. Imagine a room full of them for student access to computing ..... when
    "glass teletypes" came in it was wonderful!

    Those brutish machines were quite the monstrosities, eh?

  15. ... and a room full of them (for "student" access) could be heard half way
    down the corridor!
