With out going into detail and whilst working in Germany in 1969 I 
pulled a few Saturday night operator shifts for cash in hand on a big 
Nixdorf system.
Just to help out a friend who did not like being there on her own.
The Computer room was air conditioned and filtered down to microns.

Being Germany it was kept clinically clean and a bit on the cool side.
It took us a while to find a nice warm air outlet round the back of a 
row of tape drives.
A quick trip to the medical room to borrow some blankets and we were all 
Now we would not be cold wating for a job to run.

Contrary to your remaks I did not  lose a lover.
