the days when PCs didn’t have a hard drive and everything was stored on 740 Kb floppy disks
and there was no Windows UI, just DOS
I remember them well
...then there were those “blisteringly” hot 8bit CP/M rigs…
DOS. that was new fangled, our first computer had basic, and had to be coupled up to a TV and a casette recorder to work.
...we had one of the the old Apple ][ s with the external single sided HDDs almost as big as a shoebox.
To connect to the usenet at the local college campus we needed an acoustic handset modem (thus tying up the phone) which had a “ripping” 600 baud transfer rate.
At the college where I first took courses in that “mystical” subject known as “CS”, We still used teletype terminals, punched tape. and punched cards. Only the SYSOP was privileged enough to have one of those fancy (monochrome) CRT terminals. You know those refrigerator sized tape drives you see in all old the SciFi films and television programmmes? I’ve loaded tapes on those.
Oh, you kids and your hippity-hoppity music. I remember when making an image actually meant using this flimsy stuff called… uhm… oh, right! Paper.
...I used to do that until Arthritis decided to take up residence in all my joints. I used to not only draw and paint, but lay my own paper,, stretch my own canvas, and even mix my own pigments.
If I were still into programming (and up on the latest lingos) I’d probably be scripting my own morphs if not writing my own software.
