Heh. High school correspondence course. Fortran. 66. Coding sheets. I
hate coding sheets.
But I am so much smarter than the rest. I have an account on the
university Amdahl/470, with both Fortran G *and* H! So I will just write
and debug my code there, then punch a deck and submit it in the mail. Am
