JPL Emails

In 1991 while temping at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, Ca, before email systems like we have today, scientists at JPL would receive twice daily electronic mail messages from various governmental agencies across the U.S. These “e” mail messages came in all at one time and had to be parsed out, removing the headers and footers, and printed for each recipient. This task typically took 45 minutes to 1 hour twice a day manually. Nicholas developed a macro that ran in Word Perfect that could parse out each message, remove the headers and footers, and print it out all in under 2 minutes. Download Brochure
