I spent /hours/ reading that. At first I was looking around for the
hidden camera because I was convinced someone was playing a very
sophisticated practical joke on me at work...

> Actually, if you want to see really good online help -- vastly better even than that of VMS -- take a look at PLATO.  To become a PLATO programmer, all you'd need was for the admin to hand you your login credentials along with "sit down at a terminal and follow instructions".  A logged out terminal would display "Press NEXT to begin" -- you'd do that and literally everything from that point on would be described by on-line help of one kind or another.

Sounds great. I never saw a PLATO terminal. :-( Wish I had now!
