Okay, I'll play.
I joined Explorer Post 385 in State College, PA in 1969 as a 9th grader.
Our emphasis was computer programming, which was fairly unusual for the time.
We took programming classes from PSU grad students and area professionals,
starting with FORTRAN and continuing with IBM 360 Assembler and PL/1. EP385
was sponsored by HRB Singer, and we had an account on the IBM 360/67 at Penn
State. The preferred FORTRAN compiler was WATFOR (University of Waterloo
FORTRAN). PSU upgraded to a 370, and we moved on to WATFIV (Waterloo FORTRAN
IV). I still have some printouts from 1975 with the JCL and listings of some
of my FORTRAN programs.
