+wouldn’t recommend tcsh for any use). One thing I remember is that I often
+resorted to writing short scripts to administrate my systems in Perl instead

+(a very large amount of disk for that time), and some pentium machines

+server which was hosted at the ISP. Finally, we eventually got a Macintosh
+computer running an old pre-Mac OS X version of Mac OS, which was quite
+quirky and buggy. So quite a zoo of different systems.
+All these computers served for our job in setting up sites for clients, using
+HTML (a very old version, where best viewed in the Netscape browser, was the

+web server</a>, and CGI scripts written in Perl 5. Ah, the bad old days.
