    yep

    had to hand the cards in

    got em' back with a note "won't run -infinite loop".

    you pretty much had to fix the errors yourself. which if I could, I wouldn't have made the error in the first place.

    also remember monitor screens with nothing except a flashing cursor. very exciting when the orange characters were replaced with the new age, sleek, green characters.

    You had punch cards? We had old playing cards that we had to poke holes in with our pencils.

    Exactly. I went to a Christian Brothers School and Brother Kevin was not very accommodating when dealing with "stupid questions" from us "wise fools".

    You had pencils? Our school day began at sunup with us trapping, killing, and de-feathering local birds to begin the arduous quill fashioning process.

    Plus, all our computers were coal-fired, so you had to make sure you had enough bauxite rich coal available, and were able to stoke it constantly during your program run. If not, pffft, your program was lost and you received a failing grade.

    I went to a Christian Bros. school too. The brothers there also loved the "wise fools" line.

    one word or phrase can be the difference between a very good post and a great post.

    Those guys were nuts. If you got on the wrong side of even the most even-tempered brother (smart alec line, talking in class after having been admonished, etc.), you might wind up with a huge slap across the face.

    Thanks for noticing, gents. (Or, "gentlemen", as the brothers would call us.)

    LOL - reminds me so much of that movie 'Heaven Help Us' - great movie.

    I went to a Catholic High School, and those Christian Brothers were bastards. I guess they weren't good enough (or cool enough) to become priests, I dont know. I've been a Catholic my entire life and I still can't figure that one out.

    There was this one big-ass dude - probably about the size of old, fat Rex Ryan - but taller, and far more menacing looking - even with the giant black muumuu that he wore. He was the VP/disciplinarian guy.

    As big as he was, you could never hear him coming. I think glided than actually walked, you could never see his feet - for all we know he had wheels under there.

    I'd seen this guy pick up kids by their neck and hold up against their locker - with their feet not touching the ground. You could never get away with any of this crap now.

    I'm chuckling at your story, but deep down still scared I'm gonna get whacked for it. All of us who went through those schools have similar stories.

    The one which put the fear of God into us at my high school involved a brother who flew over his desk to grab a kid, then hang him by his ankles out a window. All this for having the gumption to "answer back". This was from the third story of the building.

    Like you, I never got the whole Christian Brother concept. You're not a fully fledged priest, but you still can't marry? WTF?

    so this thread went from teenagers partying with strippers, to war stories of old 'puterz and Catholic School abuse.


    well done, Hampur
