I had a bunch of stuff I had to do at home ans so missed it.

But I was thrilled to look out my window and see actuall VIKINGS ON BIKES!

Somehow they were gathing on Parkview Ave to go down to the start. Made me think there might be something wrong with my life for not just picking up and leaving with them.

we might be able to rig up something in mySpace, or a GEOcities link.
Or a teletype, maybe some PunchCards & a ReeltoReel tape.

;)

As some of you who attended the Viking Ride & Potluck saturday remember, we had 2 out-of-state travelers, Joey and Emmy, who have been riding their bikes from Alaska on a year-long journey. They joined us for the Potluck with their local hosts Dan and Patricia, and for what they share in their blog, they had a good time hanging with us!

Hooray for Pittsburgh & viking hospitality :)

@pbeaves. I never used myspace or geocities either. My first few college classes we programmed on punchcards, and by the time we got to use the teletype it was like using a warp-drive by comparison. The first PC I used had no hard drive, you manually loaded DOS each time you turned it on, and it had 8K of memory. So there!

You’ve never really learned what frustration is until you’ve successfully written and debugged a multi-hundred line program on punchcards.

Ha-ha, very true. I used to work with punch card that have nothing printed on them so if you drop pack of those — good luck to sort it out. :)

But punch tapes were even worse (PDP-11). You have to re-punch whole program again if you made an error in the middle.

Ah, the good old days of IBM 029 keypunch machines. How about pre-programmed drum cards shared by FORTRAN and COBOL programmers: One had the tab set at column 7, the others had it set at column 8. No fun in typing an entire deck, only to find out the tab was set in the wrong column.

I do not miss 1978.
