Demographics of Our Members

  • Re: Demographics of Our Members


    My introduction to computers came in my sophomore year in college (1968) - we programmed used Fortran IV and punched cards.

    Old, slow, and confused - but at least I'm inconsistent!

    I think it was a Punch table where we left the cards at the end of the day, then they ran them at night (desparately hoping someone didn't have an infinite loop!!). Sometimes the Punch Table was as rigid as Pivot Tables. : D

    So does that mean that at the end of a long day when they ran the "Punch Cards" that were on the "Punch Table" that they got a little "Punch Drunk"????

    It seems like every day I have to use / create various reports and such in Excel. Without this forum I would be completely lost. Thanks to all for such great Q&A's. They are really insightful

    Who said computing was for nerds, what a fine bunch of people you all sound.


    I am 50 (suger plum fairies, never thought I would think that out loud), degree in engineering (Melbourne, Australia), live in most livable Warrandyte, love mathematics.


    Run a company that aims to provide simple solutions to complex issues - using Excel because no one is scared of it - self taught VBA (so I really know nothing) but get by - I am contiunally amazed at the power of Excel - recently wrote solutions for Sukudo and the 9 letter puzzle of our local paper the AGE


    I would note have enjoyed what I do so much had it not been for Ozgrid!~!!
