Calculations

When the club started computers was NOT available to ordinary people. All calculations was made by hand with log-tables and a stick for years....These years was very good for understanding why computers are so useful!!

And at the end of 1972 some of the members entered studies the Royal Institute of Technology (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan - KTH) in Stockholm. There it was possible to use computers at evenings, nights and weekends. Now some of the members spent a lot of time exploring an old HP3000 computer and later a Digital PDP-11 (Elvira). Some of the members was "hackers" years before the word existed. Bill Gates was still studying in school at this time.
