Digital in terms of my fingers, yet analogue (please note correct spelling) in regard to the fact that it was fluid in its movements, with no tmesis in movement or discrete and measurable jumps of position.
Like a Swiss timepiece it performs will elegance and reliability, reflected in the price of course, and yet great thinking and engineering has gone into its design.
One could, nay, should, say that there ought to be an assertion that the semiotic thickness of a performed operations vary according to the redundancy of its auxiliary performance codes, and that at a subliminal level it trains the user to adhere to certain criteria and thus experience the maxima, the zenith, the apex even, of pleasure in functionality and performance.
One could say the tungusic creators who fabricated this synthesis of prodigious perfection, these lionized legions of legendary legerdemain, deserve credit of vast proportions!
I still need to go play with myself it.

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
Think it is interesting that matches are ending in draws. I am not familiar enough with chess at this level to know how often matches between masters end in draws. If they do not that is also quite interesting.
Well, it appears that I have a new assignment/role in our company. The GM likes the way I write disciplinary notices for naughty employees, so he's taken lately to calling me in to the discussions, and having me write the results for his signature. I don't mind, but I wonder if I should be asking for hazardous duty pay?
He probably can, but like most engineers, he has trouble with expressing himself in subtle tones, and the "just-the-facts" method is rarely effective in performance reviews. I'm a bit more flexible than most technocrats in my writing.
That's highly unlikely. Most of them are completely incompetent using any technology more complex than a fork, and the few who do use computers still think Yahoo is pretty neat. If anyone needs a map, they ask me to make one, because Google is too hard.
I do know the feeling - in a previous job, I was Technical Manager and described myself as "in change of everything more complex than a mains plug". Until I found the international sales manager had problems with mains plugs, and cut them off the machine every time he went abroad. Then complained that the mains leads we fitted were too short...
