At 17, studied DOS/TOS(Tape operative system)/Cobol for one of those System 360/30. When finished, another model System 3 was the trend, with RPG II (Report program generator). Start learning again... it never ended. As obsolete out of the factory as today. That has not changed.
A couple of years later, I was into programming RPG II for Datapoint.

Which did not survive much longer... but hey! TOS was on dual cassette tape drives (seen on top) instead of the armoirs, had keyboard and display !
