Over on the GameInformer channel, in the episode celebrating the 25th
year of the Sony Playstation, at the eight minute mark, the problem
there is how to write a history of the Sony Playstation with draft notes
on interviews collected numbering more than 60-pages.  There, they say
Microsoft Word is woefully inadequate to the task of working a document
60-pages and more.  The discussants are college educated with the kind
of unconventional smart to stack discount coupons for a greater compound
discount for a very, very big 8k T.V.  I'd like to think the new
elispintro will help them at their work on that Sony Playstation hitory
project.  The initial GameInformer website was constructed by reading a
book on HTML.
