I said "a long time", not "a time whereof the memory of man
runneth not to the contrary".  I remember when the first VT100's
arrived superseding the VT52's we had been using up to that time.
(12 lines on the screen and a bell like a door buzzer).

BTW, there is a specific date, at least in England, for the
beginning of legal memory: 3 September 1189.  Anything that
has been true since then, has been true forever, as far as
the law is concerned.  (It was the coronation date of
Richard I, and was so established in 1293 by Edward I.)
