Magnetic tape? That's not that old. Even I remember using floppies and even that funky Atari 'tape drive' that used plain old cassettes. Now if you'd said something about punch cards, then I would have had to play the "I think I still have the box of cards my dad used back when." But I thankfully, I didn't have to go there.

Thanks! Are those different than Allen Head bolt?

I worked at a place where they still do punch cards...I'm with John

TJ, I think you're basically right. There might be a technical difference in terminology, the socket head cap screw defines the shape of the head and the drive style. You can also get a pan head screw that is an "allen" drive as well, but yes they are both standard "allen" drives.

CNC machines? They don't count IMO. You have to have done FORTRAN, ALGOL, Cobol with punch cards to demonstrate true ancient nerdiness. I've personally never actually programmed GP computers with punch cards (other than machinery tapes), even the IBM/360 and PDP-11 machines we had back in my younger days at least had terminals and drives. Heck we even had some actual VT100s, so if you were lucky you didn't even have a dumb terminal and could use escape commands. Although mostly we just used PCs with terminal emulators unless you were near an old computer lab or something. My only brush with prehistoric computing would be using FORTRAN77, although technically C is about 30 years old.

Allen head is our slang word for the fastener, socket cap is just the proper name. But a socket cap could easily use maybe a TORX drive or square drive, so it's not necessarily going to get you what you want from a real fastener supplier.

Hey I've actually programmed in basic and saved to those cassettee tapes too, Dave.. did you have one of those? Man I bet it's been almost 30 years since I did that, let's see if I still got it

10 type "Hello, what's your name?"
20 input X
30 type "Well hello there, " X " how are you?"
40 input Y
50 type "I'm " Y "too. want to play a game?"
60 input Z
goto 10


used to do that for hours.. dang now look what happened
