Re: Ah Nostalgia....
Blodwyn, In 1962 (when I started programming at Hartree House - Intercode & CLEO) night-shift engineers used to keep beer on the cool side of the air-conditioning and pies in the warm side. Were they still doing that in 1968?

So everyone here believes that the whole world should know some programming just because they are likely to use a computer? On the same logic the whole world should know something about the design & maintenance of every commodity item - cars, televisions, etc.
If you go back far enough (senile cackle) you only learned to program after university. It worked very well and there were a lot of programmers about in the '60s.
