Thanks!

The oldest binaries I still have lying around (an ext2 ramdisk image,
still used from time to time) are ELF, from just after the a.out to ELF
transition on m68k.

I think it's safe to assume no one still runs a.out binaries on m68k.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
