LOL - first thing I ever programmed:
Hated having to track down the burned wires on that bakelite board to "debug" a program!
Data entry (what CRT?)
A database was a stack of punch cards - and we didn't need no stinkin software to sort data for us ... we had these puppys!
Unfortunately, the Navy didn't want me for my programming abilities back in 1967 ... so I went medical for 20 years ... worked back into biomedical engineering (computer/med lab equipment interfacting, real-time data acquisition, analysis) - then back into full time programming (some legal, some mortgage banking but mostly soil/concrete dam engineering). Won a couple of awards from the Corps of Engineers for creating a LAN version of what would be the WWW a few years later - under DOS 3.0.
Currently - unemployed.
