Circa  1979? Yesterday, I spoke with a man I worked with in 1978 -
1979. To my astonishment, the customer (DoD) is still using one of the
systems I worked on then. They are paying a company to upgrade the
Software, as they upgrade the Hardware. I am probably one of a few
people who can understand the original Assembly language code written
years ago for that.
