In the late '70s I worked for the Rail Technical Centre in Derby. HQ (London) used to send mag.tapes up by train. All was well until they started doing some experiments with 25Kv overhead electrification (not actually powering much, just different designs of catenary wiring). Then the tapes were arriving empty, or at best unreadable. Took about two weeks for them to suss out the problem. That was one test of the overhead wires they'd not planned!

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
