At college in my time there, everyone swooned when the department went from the IBM 26 card punches up to the 29.

Well, that would be three more wouldn't it. Think of the binary opportunities.

The first computer that I used was in college, with punchcards.
It was an NCR Century series, which at the time was EXTREME state of the art.
It even had a keyboard & card punch built into it, didn't require a stand-alone punch setup like the other 2 computers at school did.

Humanity began its long slide to oblivion when vacuum tubes passed from fashion.

Ah yes, vacuum tubes.......

Even light traveled slower back then...

perhaps I could journey back a bit with TARDIS & bring a few back with me.
Along with buggy whips, high button shoes, typewriters, clean sit-coms on TV.....

Check locker 42 on deck 42.
Most of that stuff is there.

In the early 90's I had a college job in the computer main frame center. I made back up files on huge magnetic tape reels and organized them on long rows of tape shelves. Printed large files on huge dot matric printers (very loud). One job perk was I could have an email address. I remember thinking, why? Nobody I know has email or even internet.

My engineering school computer lab had the best computers in the school with hard drives of 32M.

The Tube amp was nasty dirty and splattered audio on almost anything, phone lines and handsets...not neighbor friendly for 1/2 a mile!

I bought about 10 4' floresencent tube lights and for giggles I placed them on the roof of my truck near the one of the antennas and keyed up quite a light show in the parking lot! Bright at night!

There used to be a set of railroad crossing gates that would come down as the RF interfered with the system...Hello! had a few laughs with that one!

we had a gent in the 'hood that was totally obnoxious with his CB, running well over 1K of power, even complaining to "Uncle Charlie" didn't do any good.
A couple of well mis-placed steel staples in his co-ax quieted him right down. And who could he complain to.......

Yeah, I had an external corporate e-mail address for years before I ever bothered sending one. I figured internal e-mail was good enough.

I had two neighbors who put their radios on steroids. One was a ham operator who made a huge antenna out of bamboo poles and a tall center mast. It looked like a giant box kite. The other guy supercharged his CB setup and turned his shed into his man cave.
When they broadcast, their voices used to come over our television.

OK...then.
Back from 1967 in the TARDIS.

You will find the 42 cases... yes, 42...in locker 67 on deck 67.
Thought that would help you remember.







OK...off to year 6767 for...stuff.
