No punch card machine at the high school I attended; our 'punch' cards had to be filled in by hand using Sharpies, sent out 2x a week to the one high school in the area that had a computer we could get some processing time on, and we got to do a field trip every two weeks to that school so that we got a total of 5-6 tries maybe in a 2 week period to get our FORTRAN programs correct.

That inspired me though, so over the next summer I spent my babysitting money on a COSMAC Elf (RCA 1802) kit, taught myself assembly language and eventually abandoned my plans to become a veterinarian even though the state university I attended starting that fall didn't quite have such a thing as a degree in computer anything.
