I was doing Cobol, Fortran, and RPG (Report Program Generator) in the early 70s on an IBM 360! Collators! Writing the language/instructions on paper! Then punching cards! Logic gates! Flip-flops! Six layer disk drives the size of a small car!!

Then there was DOS, then MS-DOS, and DOS-something else.

I'm too old. In almost 40 years, why am I still typing and not speaking?
