In EBCDIC we trust.

Thousands of days ago, during my OS/2 phase, I used the mail client PMMail. Recently, I discovered a long-forgotten cache of 1996-era PMMail-format messages, hidden amongst a surplus of hyphens. I thought there perhaps might be something worth reading in there—a poignant reminder of the human mind's infinite capacity for self-delusion—and in an effort to recover these messages, I wrote a trivial converter from PMMail to Maildir format.

Now, one may explore the dark days of college to one's heart's content. Chiefly, one finds that one was once able to write real good English, which that I can't do anymore.
