I don’t think so. The monitor was a peripheral.
Now that brought back memories. I was one of the first college hires for the Western Union Sales Force in the mid-70's.I must be an old Fogie - SWMBO keeps calling me that.
The first ones I worked on the programs were loaded by ticker tape. My first job was to clean out the punch machine that created the tapes.
Reminds me of my first job ...... programmer/analyst at Exxon Corp. We wrote gigantic programs in FORTRAN that had to run in the not so gigantic core memory of 100k. Computer filled a room (more like a floor) of the building .... but only had 100k of core memory. Unbelievable that we can get an iPad now with 512GB of memory. Yikes!mainframe
Keep the 9 side down!Now that brought back memories. I was one of the first college hires for the Western Union Sales Force in the mid-70's.
In the 1960s paper cards and paper tapes were the link between human brains and computers.
Here's an IBM26 card puncher
Model 32s were often used to punch tapes.
I entered the computer/telecommunications industry in 1976. The devices mentioned above were still in heavy use.
Linking mainframe computers with "high speed" data connections was the cutting edge tech. CRT screens and keyboards were replacing the teletype (punch tape) devices of the 60's and early 70's. The company's main revenue was still teletype based. Telegrams were on the way out.
Mailgrams, a short lived phenomenum, were replacing Telegrams. Email completely replaced Mailgrams for most Mailgram users. (Mailgrams were still a Western Union product until 2006.).
