        I took a computer programming course in high school, and our class had a single teletype that connected to the local college computer with a 300 baud acoustic modem. The language we used was BASIC.

        In college, I took a FORTRAN class where we had to submit our programs on punch cards for batch processing.

          Now that is a familiar looking keyboard. My first computer was a Commodore 64.

            I think that is amazing.

            In other news I just bought a new NAS and stuck in two 12TB hard drives (run as Raid 1 mirroring) and already have it 25% full.
            Interestingly, I was talking, some years ago now, with an engineer for Sandisk. He made the comment that, in powered drives, when they got very small, electricity sometimes did odd things like travel around corners.

              It was obviously a touchscreen too!

              I thought Moses was the first one to download data from the cloud to a tablet, but now we know it was Mossy.

                  When I first got my lappy livestreaming was low priority for me.........yeah yeah I know.

                  So along with ramping up my data backup I'm having to get better streaming capacity. The computer guy I'm talking to showed me this thingy that helps with that...some kind of buffer? Anyway....technology is moving way too fast.

                    When I was in Library school, back in the last century, we were told that by the year 2000 the total sum of human knowledge would be doubling every year. It hasn't slowed nor will it.
