Oldie !!
But goodie :D . I, too, am a product of punch cards, patch boards, and slow turning open reel tape drives. I remember when we got our first drum mass storage unit for the Univac 1050-II. Imagine an object the size of an oil drum spinning inside a case. Imagine, also, one of those suckers breaking an spindle bearing and flying out of its case across the computer room floor.
