Okay, I guess I should get in on this...
Remember punched paper tape? First program I ever wrote was immortalized on that stuff, and I'm pretty sure I still have it around somewhere. Though I did throw away the boxes of punched cards a long time ago.
First got onto usenet in about 1984, if I recall
correctly. That would, of course, have been on an old IBM 3270 terminal. Unless I was doing it on the weekend, and then it would have been on the Silent 700, with built-in 300 baud modem
, that the company gave me in case I needed to work from home.
Yes, I still remember when the first "high-speed" 1200 baud modems came out. Man, we were flyin'.
On the other hand, in my job as a DBA, I still use the sudo command almost every day, in a terminal-emulation window that is based off of that old IBM 3270!
