Same here.  Computer science major; 30 years in front of monitors and
keyboards all day; database management, writing code....and I know
hams who spend days and days fiddling with PCs and logging
software....Why?   What a waste of valuable radio time in my opinion.
Not only do I reject computer "modes," but I run a computer free
shack.   Great FT8 story by the way.
