A fitting tribute to the original milestone paper, as thoughtful and well-written as the original.

Actually, they were. In 1960, for a 1-term project as a grad student, I was handed a Fortran manual, a set of partial diff equations for solar thermal convection, and told I'd be given four hours on the research center computer the next week. Got the program written, edited it in SOAP, and swore I would never touch a computer again.
