Norm and Travis, I may have both of you beat. My first computer was a TRS-80, storage was a cassette tape, the 90 minute ones held 50% more data than the 60 minutes ones. The next computer I had used 5 1/4 floppies. I did work in a lab that had a computer with the 8 inch floppies as storage.
Yes we have come a long way!
Yep, the TRS-80 was released in August 1977. While I didn't own the computer I fed data too a mainframe in the late 60's, Put the data on punch cards, put them in the computer at night, pick up the results the next morning, only to find I made a mistake and the whole thing was a mess. Damn thing didn't know how to divide by zero.
