I took a computer course in high school in 1980. There were no personal computers then--just a large machine like the one in this ad. We had to program what the computer was supposed to do by filling out those infernal bubble cards. The cards were couriered to another high school in a neighboring city that had one of these enormous computers. I recall it took at least a dozen cards to get the computer to do a simple adding calculation.
