Good point... Already gave my age...
Started in high school on an HP2000C timesharing system,
followed by CDC 6400s at Kaman Sciences through the school district.
In college CDC6600/6400, HP 2100 (RTE/2000E),
PDP11/23 (Paper Tape) and PDP11/40 (Unix) machines, along with
a lot of custom built microprocessor stuff. For a summer
job worked on a Honeywell (formerly GE) 6000 system at Norad
doing testing for the satellite tracking system...
In "The Real World" PDP 11/70 (RSTS/E), HP 3000s,
HP 1000s, IBM 360s, HP 9826/9836/300s, etc. etc.
Then PCs came along -- well, became popular anyway...
There, _now_ it's on-topic -- sort of a history of computing
kind of thing...
