or horror of horrors; toggle switches of the MITS Altair.


That stuff was cool! I remember in 8th grade being taught by the chemistry teacher how to enter the bootstrap code into the PDP/11 with toggle switches. Unfortunately, he didn't teach me what exactly I was doing and why. It was only later that I realized I was entering opcodes and toggling the "increment memory" for each binary code. Smile | :)

But yeah, I'm glad we don't have to do that anymore.
