I tell you, there might be demonstrations of old and experienced UNIVACs, having seen their own discriminations at NASA, leading mobs of the newer and easily impressionable CRAYs, Lenovo NUCs, and legions of IBM power9 core systems, holding signs. Demanding. Demanding they be heard!
“BEEP!” says the Univac at the RGB lit microphone. Across the swath of loudly fan cooled systems.
“beeeeep!” they responded audibly through their five-volt motherboard speakers.
