Everything is still overpriced. Man-O'man, I remember when gas was $0.32/gallon, a pair of Koss Pro 4A headphones cost $49.00, weekly groceries were $15.00 (and that included a weekend 6-pack!), no one subscribed to TV - all 4 channels were free. And, we coded with paper punch cards.

I'm still a diehard Apple fan, though.

First, you forgot the UHF channels with the goofy local host who dressed up as a spaceman.

And as the first class to go all floppy (the 8”), I used to feel bad when the older CS majors would drop their box of punch cards in the crowds between classes and watch them scatter across the floor.

They would cry.

Have you checked eBay for the price of NOS 8" floppies and "IBM" punch cards? Insane pricing! LOL Had I known then what I know now......

We only had VHF. I do remember the sci-fi "Thunderbirds" series.

Yes, those were the days back in the 70's. I remember being introduced too and watching professional wrestling and seeing a very young Vince McMahon interview the wrestlers. Haha

I was blessed to just miss the punch card era. My first exposure to computing was with a DEC PDP 11/70 - the university was in the process of redoing all the labs to install terminals. There was still a punch card reader, but most people avoided it like the plague.

Man, you haven't lived until you've played Star Trek on a DECwriter II dot-matrix terminal!

I remember playing Lunar Lander on the DEC 11 with the a DM terminal. I was a Senior (1971) in prep school and I think Ken Olsen may have donated it to the school. It was sad to see DEC decline as they did.
