using TECO as it sometimes took a little effort to make it work (although
Paul was pretty careful) - but particularly on non-UNIX boxes (other than
VMS) it might not be so easy.  Since Oscar's PiDP-10 and Angelo's PDP-1
work, I'll need an editor again, so I may have to relearn it -- be
interesting to see how fast it comes back. 🤔
