used the punch cards in college --
first one I owned was an Apple 2+ -- paid @ $5,000 dollars for it (very serious money) - green screen -- 2 floppy drives that held 143K each -- no hard drive - dot matrix printer hammering out 80 characters per second
300 baud modem and I was on what became the internet -- but you had to have the phone numbers of the boards you wanted to dial into - all long distance - then came CompuServe and a whole world started to open up.
