    I think they were sent to me at work. A lot has happened in the intervening years…
    Just thinking of computers, there was no Windows version out at that time. The file
    was printed with a dot matrix printer on a DOS system…yet the questions are as funny
    today as they were then. I’m glad they caught your eye.
