  1. Great episode. Love the trip in the WayBack machine to the old mainframe days. However, the ‘bacon on the burger’ was the technical whiteboard framed by payphones on each side.

    Tim, we spare no expense on the set of Engineers Unplugged. Time machines, not a problem. Perhaps we’ll hire real unicorns for the season finale.
