Same here but it was 1971. The local community college had a pdp-8i with 32k, 3 RS08s, 3 TU55s. Even completely full of users unless someone was really crunching numbers or doing lots of disk I/O you could not really tell you were sharing it. Yes, we had a TTY at the high school. A good friend loaned me Introduction to Programming and I learned assembly. I enjoyed assembly even on 360's using BAL. Nothing you can't do in assembly.
