Except this beast was 110baud. But time sharing systems in those days weren't much faster (IBM 1401 series, Honeywell 200 series, early IBM360). It was a TTY33 in a case with wheels and an acoustic coupler (connecting wires to AT&T's network in those days was strictly verboten). It weighed about 90 pounds (or at least felt like 90 #).
The first 300baud units were lugable but used thermal paper on a roll.
Naw, it's Bush's fault...
Ahhh, big government solves everything. Like IT in NHS.
Speaking of Airbus, have you seen the video of an Airbus (on a test flight) that decided it was going to land in the trees? The crew was killed. Software.
Heuristics are bug ridden by definition. If they didn't have bugs, then they'd be algorithms.
