Join the club (Geriatric Programmers United). Apart from some stats work on a KDF9 using Autocode in the mid 60s, Algol 60 was the first language I earned my bread and butter with. That would be in 1968. I also used some NEAT assembler to drive a 24bit parallel interface we had designed and build, to connect a 250kW alternator up for real time analysis. All good stuff in those days.
