greets,


I'm trying to find a 70's funny short film about computer programmers that I saw on youtube a while ago. The plot is simple: Two men in suits visit two programmers working in a garage. They make a deal, the businessmen leave. The computer programmers basically don't do anything for the next week or so other than eat pizza and drink coke, then in the last day they push a button and the program get's printed out, i.e. as if pushing the button magically created the program.


Anyone know this one? What's it called?

found it,

it's actually from 1990, but filmed on super-8 film so it looks kinda 70ish.

LOL

There was a MAC and PC, those didn't exist in the 70's  only in the mid-late 80's...

Damn - they must've had to have that Super-8 film developed by hand; by 1990 it was pretty much impossible to get such movie film developed at the regular consumer level, since video cameras (tape) had pretty much taken over by then.
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

You can still get 8mm, super 8mm, and 16mm films developed today.  Sure your corner drug store no longer will handle it, but the services do exist.  I would imagine such places soon will not handle 35mm/110 still films either.

In looking at the various places that came up via a google search, you can also get processing done on most outdated film stocks for an extra charge (ektachrome needs special processing, and kodachrome is no longer done, except for conversion to black & white).
