Oh, the memories this thread is dragging up! 1984... Fortran on a Univac 1100-80. Luckily, my class was the first year that DIDN'T have to use punch cards (thank heavens for small favors!) Of course, running that final exam program and having it crash part way through (BUT IT WORKED THE LAST TIME I RAN IT!!!), and taking three days to get it fixed... Ugh. Don't miss that at all!
When I got to program in Pascal on an IMB (AT or XT?) in 1988... wow, that was really living it up!!! A group I belonged to in college used to make up all the buttons (pins) for events. Some of them took old green bar paper and printed UNIVAC SUCKS on it, and we took to wearing them around campus. It's amazing how popular that button was with the upperclassmen who'd all experienced the pain of the mainframe. -Carla cmartinek at zebra.com And that's why I switched from a CS major to an STC major after that first year :-) - CONFIDENTIAL- This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential, and may also be legally privileged.
