What technologies are you currenly working with?

HTML5, CSS3, jscript, jquery ... MIDI

You started when programs were stored: A) On punchcards, B) on cassette tapes, C) on floppies, D) on hard drives, E) on webservers, F) on AWS or elsewhere in the cloud, G) Other?

Cassette Tapes! ... And I would listen to them on my stereo and freakout. The squelchy modem noises were too much for me to handle.

My bragging rights were earned by doing this:

Not sure if I should disclose this ... but In 1983 I was the first kid of anyone I knew to download full motion porno. Yes, you read that right. '83. It was made by Germans. I spelunked it off some suburban BBS. It used some early mocap tech and kind of looked like a rotoscoped animation that looped at about 10 frames per second. As a devious 12 year old, I of course made copies and distroed it on 5 inch floppies to all my other nerd pre-teen friends who had commodore 64s. They were very grateful.

In hell, they develop software using/for/on: ?

A bloated and crashy Win95 machine with an intermittent 14.4k connection to a VAX server that likes to time-out your sessions and lose all your changes.
