"ICL 1900 running George 3, on punch cards"

Didn't they name a king after that OS? At least that's what a school maths club asked as part of my first programming experiences using hand punched cards, pressing out each chad with a stylus on an IBM Port-a-Punch, using every second column, and posting the Algol (IIRC) code off to Leeds University (c 1969) (I think it was George 4 by then - A better king?).

The punch, post, compile, run, printout cycle too a whole week! We learnt to check our code and the cards. Primes up to 1000, integer Pythagorean triangles, etc. Great stuff.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
