    I am just old enough for the card decks. They got rid of them at my university before I graduated. Didn't really miss 'em!

    I did not know that trick of making an angled line on top of the deck, Craig. Fortunately, I think I was too paranoid to ever have come close to dropping a deck!

    My senior year I worked part time for a NC programming shop doing work for Caterpillar. The guy I worked for, bought his own PDP 11-34. I remember the editor you spoke of. The disk drives were the size of washing machines, and the disk packs were like stacks of aluminum meat platters. There was a certain elegance to programming back then, you needed to conserve resources always. A little in-line assembler could get you out of jams.

    Oh yeah, those were the days when you had to have your big Orange (I believe for PDP) Manuals that explained every register that was used for a call and how. Assembler was jumped into to manipulate the inputs and outputs at a very fine level. I did a whole bunch of PDP 11-70 Programming making robots move around on the shop floor at McDonnell Douglas (Now Boeing). 32 K of source and Data in memory at any one time, if I remember correctly. My fanciest program I ever wrote was to read the location instructions that a robot had and then take four points that were measured from where they put the tooling today and correct the program from the desired location to the absolute location. That took some of that real fancy differential equation math. Just the notation makes my head spin any more.

    I interviewed at Boeing - Wichita, but did not take the job. It's crazy that my cell phone has more raw computing power than the room sized machine I used back then. And the DEC machine was way smaller than the Bradley mainframe that was building sized...

    We are dating ourselves!

    Back when I graduated from college was a great time for engineers. I interviewed with 6 companies, went on 5 trips to various cities from New York to New Iberia, LA. Got 5 job offers and I wasn't a top of the crop, but I had experience as a coop. Those were the days. And yes, we are dating ourselves.

    Careful! When I was young, they told us that would make you go blind!

    I use a spreadsheet. With each new wine, I add a new sheet to the file and name it, ie "2019-Cranberry". I fill in data as I progress with the batch. When the batch is bottled, I copy & past to a Completed" spread sheet. The attached pdf file only shows a small area of the spreadsheet. I'll send a copy if you want it.

    I’m an old programmer but I’m lazy...

    I use OneNote. It’s surprisingly useful. Lots of free text, you can embed spreadsheets and produce macros and add ins etc. also good for creating todo lists and thousands of other things.

    Maybe MS is everyone’s favorite but this one works really well for me

    That said...

    I wouldn’t say no to having a nosy at the google sheet
