@leila My Rabbi, who was involved in the original Mac tech boom in CA, would absolutely get a KICK out of that QBASIC joke, I may tell it to him if I get a good set up for it XD

πŸ’» Computers can actually be grown from cuttings. Take a key from any laptop keyboard (home row keys work best) and place it in a mix of sand and iron filings, and water it regularly

@leila I'm going to put this in an email and send it to all my coworkers!
