The last online holdout?

Dallas Morning News columnist Steve Blow gives in to the winds of change.

Now, it would be easy to ridicule Mr. Blow, but I recall my early days here cranking out copy on manual typewriters in triplicate, and I understand the romance of which he speaks.

Good article.

Reminds me of my dad and power tools. When my wife and I were building our home in 2005, he came out to help. We was very very reluntant to use the many power tools we were using. He thought using the spray painter was silly, and thought we should've used rollars. Then often used screw drivers before we finally got him to put a driver bit on a drill. He was sure the finishing gun wouldn't work right when we were doing the trim.

It is tough to leave to old ways behind.
