17, which is NBD (no big deal), but I'd just turned 17 back in the summer of 1968 between my junior and senior year in HS. Taking "introduction to engineering nsf" classes at OSU. FORTRAN with 029 punch-card with IBM 7090 main-frame, iirc. One job-card a day.

"You kids have it sooooo easy." Smile | :)

Went from being a "wrench" day-dreaming about Corvettes and Z/28's and figuring to eventually work in Detroit, to absolutely gob-smacked by these new-fangled computers. A life changing experience.

TMI? ... I can recall my at-the-time GF experiencing MEGO (my eyes glaze over) while I explained ... in detail ... how a software program to find "perfect right-angle integer triangles" worked. That was pretty much the end of that. Sigh.
