Spin it however you want it, young 40+ years ago, AND programming, is still not young today w00t.

My first exposure to computers was a mainframe using magnetic core memory. You saved your programs on punch tape (like punched cards but came on a roll and was only about 1" wide). It didn't have any CRTs and only had a teletype for an output.

Same here - actually thought that punch tape was a major improvement over card decks -especially if the operator was mad at you for something:-)

They flew so much better across the data center. How about the 5MB platters used to make the disk packs?:-P

But have you used 8" floppy disks?

8" single sided, 5" single sided single density, 5" double sided double density, 3 1/2" floppy 720K, 3 1/2" floppy 1.44M, 128M optical WORM drives, ZIP drives, and even cassette tape on my TRS80.

Have you ever punched a hole in a single sided disk where the write-protect tab goes to use the other side? I did that to save money when I was poor but then realized the disk spins backwards when you use the other side and the dust collectors built into the envelope puts the dust back on the disk when you do that.

I also used a soldering iron to burn holes in 720K 3.5" floppies to let them store 1.44M (unreliably of course)

Yep, I've done both of those. Though at one point I got a tool to punch the 720k floppies. I never had problems with dust on punched 5.25" disks. It was just disappointing that once I got a double-sided drive that you couldn't read both sides. (Because of the reverse spinning.)

Nice way to make some feel soo oldHehe

I agree. I was programming in the late 70's (not SQL) so I am way older but don't want to admit how much older. You can probably tell by my picture anyway.

Actually, I was programming at a young age.



Spin it however you want it, young 40+ years ago, AND programming, is still not young today w00t.

Sounds pretty young to me, though. Young in the late 70s probably means born after 1960. :-D
And if you call the late 70s 40+ years ago you are out of line with those of us who believe centuries have only 100 years Hehe
