Excellent posts Keith. I DO remember the punch cards. The university I attended had a "punch-card / computer system" and we all thought it was absolutely star wars. Little did we know the technology that was to come. I learned programming using Pascal, which I understand is the "teaching" language. That's really when I determined mechanical engineering was right for me and not the programming profession. You have to have the patience of Job to be a programmer and there are probably no type "A" individuals that could stand to be involved with this area. I think it's a fascinating profession and occasionally I write a few C ++ programs to prove I can still do it.
