Volunteers welcomed.

I started in 1965.  I still have my FORTRAN (not II) manual.  I also 
used an IBM-1620.  The mass storage device was punched cards.

Also IBM 7090/7094, IBM 360 Series 60, and CDC 6600.

No, not petulance, frustration.  You report a problem doing things 
*your* way and we *did* try to help.  We ask for your help in confirming 
the problem in a way we can duplicate and you say no.  Who is being 
petulant here?

My argument is that we will fix problems that we can confirm.  I still 
don't see why you won't help us help you.
