Interesting. Links to folks still using Hollerith cards, DEC PDPs, Apple IIes, and Tandy CoCos. Cool that the guy running his accounting system on an Apple IIe is using a software package written in 1984. http://www.pcworld.com/article/249951/if_it_aint_broke_dont_fix_it_ancient_computers_in_use_today.html

Well, let's see: 1. Pope says birth control ban doesn't mean breed 'like rabbits' - "Some think, excuse me if I use the word, that in order to be good Catholics, we have to be like rabbits - but no," he said, adding the Church promoted "responsible parenthood". "The Church approves only natural methods of birth control, principally abstinence from sex during a woman's fertile period."
