I always liked the paper tape myself, remember the magnetic drums

BTW, there is an old definition of the term "Programmer" that I've always been fond of that springs to mind:

Programmer: A red-eyed mumbling mammal, capable of communicating with inanimate objects.
That is a good one

And to think that before computers came along, they used to put people who exhibited that sort of behavior in white jackets with long sleeves that tie in the back. Just another example of how machines have improved the human condition.
Ah yes, there coming to take me away ha, ha.

To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and there coming to take me away ha, ha
