Re: Starting on the Museum exhibits, ending on them.

"When I started learning IT at school, a lot of attention was paid to punch cards, kimball tags and other almost obsolete tech which I saw hide nor hair of when I reached work a year or two later."

When I started work, my first COBOL programs were on punched card. I even produced one with a hand punch, because the data prep department was busy.

You got one compilation run a day in those times.
