To:      All you old editors

You know you're an old editor if...
	you still cringe when you perform an out edit.
	you have a nagging feeling that nobody's checked the capstan oscillator
since morning.
	you haven't had a hot meal at work since they powered down the VR-1000.
	you still wear steel-toed shoes in the tape room.
	you duck when somebody says slo-mo.
	you're afraid to stay on a freeze frame for more than 10 seconds.
	you still think of a horizontal DVE push by the Squeezoom effect number.
	you still wish you had an AVR-1.
	you hand your client a punch paper-tape when he asks for and EDL.
	your feet used to ache after an edit session more than your butt or your
head.
