[QUOTE=NotAPreppie;179117]Back before computers were "personal"?

You also programmed the IBM 650????. Me too (back in 1957). I seem to remember that one had to take into account the position of the data on the drum in order to minimize the delay in accessing the data. My God, are we showing our age!

Actually, no. My first computer was an Atari 800. The first one I did anything with on my own was a Commodore 128. My current project involved 10 k-type thermocouples and an ATmega328 microcontroller...

I'm just aware of those days. A family friend showed me his Master's thesis... A giant stack of punch cards.

Science adjusts it's views based on what's observed.
Faith is the denial of observation so that belief can be preserved.
