From: LI, NY
I had to keypunch stacks of cards in FORTRAN class.
Fourteen years of experience in the electronics field, and the first time I saw a keypunch was when I starting working for the government.
Yup, that right, I work for the gov'ment. Over thirty years for the FAA on their computers systems. Gonna hold that against me.
Edit: BTW, first place I saw an 8" floppy too.
Edit edit:The Smithsonian called, and took our card reader/punch when they heard we were getting rid of it. Our worked, theirs didn't.
