How about, ForTran 2 & 4, BASIC, Zilog & Intel Assembler, Pascal, Forth, Modula-2, C, C++, C#. My brain ought to be completely dead by now! How did I manage to steer clear of COBOL? Perhaps that's what saved me.

QuoteOriginally posted by: FermionQuantmeh, are you going to tell us when you worked there?i never worked in such a grandeur setting. my hangouts were more like caves or dungeons. i must admit, i'm not as old as Cuch, never had a chance to lay my hands on Strela. Strela is hardcore, i spent some time on BESM-6, had a 10MB personal bobbin. that's as archaic as i had. otherwise, my fave work horse was SM-1600 and MERA CAMAC

QuoteStrela is hardcoreIn the 50's Strela could solve the heat equation on [0,1] using a mesh 1/64 in 10 minutes using ADE method. And a nice room because Серге́й Льво́вич Со́болев worked there
