Punch cards for code writing and tabulation. And you had to make appointments for computer time on the university's computer.
reply
5 ups
My college had these until the end of my senior year. Only PCs were in Ed building because Apple donated them. I used them for typing papers. Had no idea what the mouse was for or why anyone would want to use it. Poor suckers who dropped their card stacks and did not number them were screwed. Never waited to last minute to write my fortran or basic programs as computer was down more than running.

We had a monster like that in 7th grade. You booted it up off a startup floppy disk. Seems like forever ago. I actually had a typing class with real electronic typewriters in high school too, not data entry or keyboarding.

I was keeping up with the Commodore. I think I've made several memes about this. We didn't have a "real computer" until the early 2000s, so I grew up on Bard's Tale and a few unidentifiable text adventure games.

I never played the good Wolfenstein. First one I played was the Super NES port, where all mentions of Hitler, Nazis or swastikas were removed. Gameplay was clunky, graphics were bad. The DOOM port was better, but not by much.
