When I started out in computer programming some 40 years ago you could
submit a job, with some JCL, on an IBM mainframe computer via an input
card reader and you were lucky if you got back the result a day later.
How happy I was when I went to microcomputers and could get almost
instantaneous results from any programming attempt.

Fast forward to now, some 40 years later, and it seems like nothing
changes, despite the great advancement in computer technology and online
access in our current age. Attempting to run CI using Appveyor literally
has jobs queued pending a run for days and days. Surely there must be
something better in this day and age than this ridiculously slow
internet service. Is it 1979 again ?
