Those were the days...

I did my PhD on a BBC Model B with 64K RAM.  It lived in the middle of 
the labs, had acid, blood, PTFE solution and tea spilt over it on a 
regular basis and it never ever faltered.  The main problem, as I 
recall, was the BASIC interpreter had a 'number of lines' limit so you 
had to put multiple commands on the same line to try and force more in.

Don't make 'em like they used to...
