    Default physical(adj.

    Nichols, A computer operator back in 1955 said in 2000:

    “The printers and check sorters would roar like machine guns all through the night…It was deafening. If you stood next to them you couldn't hear a thing in the morning. It was a very physical experience you don't get today."
