Welcome. Always glad to have another member with years of experience. The equipment changes but the problems are the same.

I cut my teeth on the IBM 650 and SOAP. That should give the youngsters something to google.

RedBird,
Not that much later. I've also programmed the 1620 in Fortran. Did you ever get to learn how to wire up a 101 board which was used on the 650s and on the Ibm 101?

Ah the joys of punched cards.

Fortunately I'm not that old!

Although I've spent a lot of time at 026 and 029's! I satisfy my mainframe fix every once in awhile by running a Hercules system with a 3174, 3278 and 3287.

Hmm, some oldtimers are talking - 650, 1620. Those were second generation for me. I started on a Zuse Z11. And I also remember the damn drum rotation calculations one had to make to optimize performance. But a machine I really liked was the 1401 (variable word length). Then the 7070 and 7090 and on to the /360s and on and on. You had to have muscle in those days hauling the boxes of 2000 punch cards around. All that is good old history for the Smithsonian museum - and so are probably some of us. LOL

Z11, I've read about that machine. Quite ahead of it's time.

The Computer History Museum in Mountain View has TWO operational 1401's. One is a German machine complete with 50Hz power and the other from Connecticut.

Maybe we need an old timers forum. The kids would have no clue what we're talking about.

Hey Guys. I'm glad to be here at Windows 7 Forums. I installed Windows 7 recently and I thought I would join the forum to learn more about it. I usually go by "John" or "Cat" if you need to know my name. Once again I'm glad to be here :D.
