hadn't been that long ago for me! We tested the Astro-2 payload of  
STS-67 at Kennedy Space Center using a PDP-11 which had a hard  
sectored 8" floppy, paper tape and card punch! We set up a IBM-PC  
with a DAC card to simulate the paper tape and the card punch/ 
reader !  It was alive and working in  1995 !  We did an upgrade to  
out main CPU system in the Automated Test Equipment area to replace  
the core memory to solid state ! Most overtime I ever worked!
