Re: Black magic
VMS's DCL command line had a built-in utility to remove older versions of files: PURGE/KEEP=n, where n was the number of previous versions you wanted to retain. If I recall correctly, that is: it was a looong time ago!

A former Wanger here too. For the launch of Wang Cares, Wang Ireland took delivery of a brochure and some baseball caps, to be sent to all customers during the launch week. I still have my "Wang Cares" cap somewhere.
And the title of the launch week? Why, "Wang Cares Awareness Week", of course!
Many years ago, I caused one of these storms!
I was working at the time for the Irish branch (small) of an extremely large US company (tens of thousands of employees). The boss of the Irish branch asked me to send all the Irish employees a notification that he was leaving the company.
I, being an idiot, sent it to everyone in the US parent company too.
I was still getting replies when I left two years later.
