A PERFECT example of a "batch" application!

E-mailing a program to the compiler-server would be sufficient
response time. I suggest an alternate *postal* interface that
accepts express mail delivery of hollerith punch cards and sends
pack either puched deck output, or paper (with green strips).

Old IBMers and computer nostalgia buffs like myself would flock
to use the service. ( Any chance of putting up an Intercal
compile server ? )
