I remember them better than you do.

 

See, my dad was a hardware engineer for DEC in the 70's and 80's.  Our house was crammed full of VT52's, VT125's, LA120's, WT78's and DF03's even before upper middle class households gifted Commodore 64's to their kids.

 

Programming DCL on a VAX 11/780 over an acoustic 300 baud link was how I learned to type.

 

(Also the PDP was called a Programmed Data Processor so that they could be sold to the federal gubmint without using the dough that Congress had budgeted for "computers." :) )
