So yesterday, before I left the work to go see the back doctor, Boss Dude gave me something he thought I would find interesting.
It is a folder with some really old lecture notes/transcripts for a computer programming class. Also enclosed is an old punchcard, the old storage medium for computer programs.
In the literature, this line exists:
"Currently the most important internal type storage is the magnetic core memories."
If you know what that is, it will a) tell you how old this stuff is, and b) make you laugh.
