I'm gonna trump you "old" timers! I wrote my first program in 1965 on a wired board. For non-techies, this was before even vacuum tubes.
Side bar trivia....the reason that a program flaw is called a "bug" is that back in the days of wired boards, moths and other small flying insects would sometimes get in between the boards and short out wires. It started as literally being a bug!
Boy, I AM old!
