A couple of my first jobs were as a typesetter... loved it. I remember when buying a new font strip was almost as good as buying new shoes!

To my great pleasure, I was able recently to bore a young'un around here with an expansive explanation of the (at least purported) etymology of the words "uppercase" and "lowercase."

Mike -- I hope you remembered to tell the young 'un the derivation of "mind your p's and q's," another bit of typesetting esoterica.

Oh man, I did the typesetting thing too, for a small student-run literary journal at MSU just a smidge before computers made it so much easier. I remember a graduate coming up to me and saying, "Why not use a Macintosh?" A what???
