Raytheon?

Raytheon still exists? Wow.

My first computer-related job was operating a Raytheon 701 (anybody remember drum memory?). I practiced programming on it by punching machine languages instructions into the front panel, doing things like "if you turn this switch, make that light up."

Raytheon.

Wow.
