My second machine was 9 bits = 8 + parity. 10 years later I was working
on 36 bit words = 4 x 9 bit ACSII = 6 x 6 bit BCD.

In my later computer life, the best thing I ever did, 10 years ago, was
to abandon all m$ and move to C 5.3 which was truly a computer
programmer's dream. Liberating and exhilarating.

chunk, chunk, chunk, ding, 110 baud terminals, then along came Terminets
at a faster 300 baud. Think I can still punch a 80 column card using a
hand punch.

Many now take for granted Centos without fully appreciating how powerful
and empowering it is or the tremendous work done by those creating,
maintaining and testing it and others developing extensions and repos.
Life without Centos would be bleak.
