40 some years ago, Merritt College (Oakland, origin of the Black Panthers)
was running PDQ FORTRAN and a 1401 emulator on a 1620.
Those were the good old days. Even if it was uphill in both directions.
My favorite teacher was a real grouch who didn't like me, but he really
knew his stuff. ~25 years ago, when I got tenure, I was given a very old
wood desk to use. It was still full of papers from my old teacher (who
had died about 30 years ago).
One of my colleagues had the card decks for the software for the 1620,
until the college administrators had it all dumpstered one weekend.
