Steps to a good time:

1) Install voice control software to experiment with.
2) Open up pine (my email program) in a terminal window.
3) Talk to the baby, e.g. "Daddy digs you, ivy!"
4) Voice control software hears me and uncritically echos to the window with focus.
5) Pine interprets each letter as a command. Of particulate note, "d" is "delete".
6) Notice I've deleted some incoming mail I haven't yet read.

Now that's computing.
