    Bruce, same deal with me...UC San Diego 1971. Burroughs 6700. We used to do the keypunch at night to alleviate the crowd, the labs were all left wide open at night back then...Our term project was Monopoly, very tedious as I remember...oh, and we were able to use the wall phones in the labs to use the UC 'tie line' phone system. dial the code for the campus, 9 for outside line and voila! talk to the GF or family...cheers

    My year was the last to learn Fortran at my uni (1994) and it was a mix of Fortran 77 and Fortran 90 (a few assignments in each) - the following year I believe did C or Matlab for the same assignments.
