Originally posted by Chuckles I remember creating paper tapes offline on the old KSR-33 teletypes to type in my programs when I was in school, then we'd use the paper tape reader to transmit them when we got online - typos, corrections and all. Slow but it worked. And I remember the big disk pack drums that you had to mount on a washing machine size drive. Wow - 300 megs! Who'd EVER need more than THAT! My how times change, sometimes even for the better.
In the USAF we trained on older Harris and DEC machines, remember the PDP-11

Wow! Not only did you recognize my own obscure reference, but you matched it with an equally obscure reference of your own (which I also recognize). I'm impressed!
Yes well I still have the original volume one of Dr. Demento on vinyl
