I worked on a HP box that was self contained (Monitor, printer, keyboard, tape drives) that had a form of BASIC on it. It had I think 6 inch floppy external by two (HP) cassette tape drives. Great stuff at the time but man the pain when the tape did not work. I believe a smart phone has more computing power.

I also programmed FORTRAN with punch cards. We had a ramp up to the computer center where routinely people (including myself) would dump trays of cards. Hey a line on the top was a life saver. Laugh | :laugh:
