Good sir or madam, I wouldst delicately and most-diplomatically point out that it is, in fact, not so that your intuitive suppositions are correct ... but that, in fact, it is precisely my key-point that, (counter-intuitively though they may-or-may-not be), they are not.
For at least a generation, our predecessors made-do without computers of any kind... they used only punched cards, and with those primitive tools they accomplished miracles.
For another full generation beyond that,computers existed, yes, but copious memory-sizes did not. “A million bytes of memory?! Gosh!”
It is, indeed, precisely(!) my point that our grandfathers with their punched-card machines had, and still have, a valuable lesson to teach us.
