The famous “punched cards”, which each cold hold 80 characters or one line of programming instructions or data for processing.
I learned this language, and created my assignments in decks of those cards.
Back in November, when I was starting in mastodon, we had a delightful thread about it, which included this image. @k11m1 — see it here

Casual Conversation, Interesting Tips.
Once again I had an enjoyable conversation, earlier today. From my laptop, logged into my Qoto acount via Web client, I also browsed Mastodon.social via Pinafore, and we started a chat.
Achso was there(@email@example.com), and we kind of continued a conversation from a day or two before. I enjoyed it, said a lot, and thought it would make for a nice blog post.
The full thread is online, and can be seen here. I was posting via Pinafore, and limited to 500 characters, unfortunately – which led to some choppy posts (instance there limited to 500 chars max).
