RE: No code



Yeah! and while we're at it, let's require all computer users to
understand assembler op-codes. If your monitor and keyboard die
you can simply hook up a string of LEDs and paddle switches to use
your computer. We don't want any of those new-fangled whippersnapper
non-programmers on the internet any way. That's the way we did it in
69, and that's the way it should be today.
