Re: old computers for satellite tracking

HA HA Rick,

Me too. It was an old PDP-8 and the programs i wrote were written to Vinyl tape.  Then you
hotfooted the tape over to the other machine and it ran the program right off the tape.
Pretty fast too!  had to use a big trash can to catch the program as it ran to completion.
Had to be a good typist though, any mistakes and you started from the begining.

Upgraded later to PDP-11/03's , With terminals!!
glad i got out of that profession before it got to easy. LOL
