reality sometimes hits me like a ton of bricks

You know you’re like about the oldest person in class when the instructor asks everyone if they remember how the Commodore 64 was the in computer back in the days and you’re the only one in the class that knows what he’s talking about!

  1. When I was at University of South Carolina, I took a computer class, and we had big boxes of cards! We had to do the whole program on about 200 cards and then feed them into the computer to be read. I think USC was way behind the curve as I bet other schools had at least gotten more advanced than that system of doing things! In Wikepedia, they say that these computers went out in the 1970's, but I was at University of South Carolina around 1981, so USC was really behind the curve back in the day!

  2. See? We're all old. When I was in high school, we did our chemistry tests using those cards Freedom Smith is talking about. We made Christmas wreaths out of leftover computer cards. In college I took all those outdated computer classes—Basic, Cobol, Fortran, etc. I remember when the Commodore came out! I remember Atari 800's and TR-80's (Tandy Corporation, as in Radio Shack). I went to the US Festival (sponsored by Apple's Steve Wozniak, whose big competitor was the Commodore)…I'm so old.
