Default Re: September 5, 2023: What Defines "Old-School"?

So a Commodore 128 or Apple IIgs is retro? How about playing Super Star Trek running on a PDP-11 via a modem / ASR-33 teletype. It took around an hour to print out the program listing, which I used to teach myself how to program. The first program I wrote was a simple game to verify I understood the programming language and concepts. Is that old school enough for you, or am I just old? Oh I'm just old huh? Well, then let's talk about the PDP-8. ;-)
