Stelco - where I worked for 40 years. Started on the floor, then a foreman, the last 30 years as a Systems Engineer.
Systems experience - Dec PDP-11's, Vax, HP Mini, PLC's and of course the PC.
Languages - Fortran, Macro, Basic, C, RPG, ADMINS and now HTML + CSS & JAVA
Unfortunately Stelco is long gone. They provided me with a good, well paying, interesting job, and a life long interest in computer systems. Met many interesting and dedicated fellow employees in various occupations right across the plant that I really enjoyed working with.
Over the years I managed to collect a few bits and pieces that may be of interest that I will list here in no particular order
In the early years of computer systems, user groups were quite popular(still have my DECUS pin). Folks were willing to share software and experiences. I had several programs on the DECUS tapes, unfortunately these are getting harder to find with Google. A few are listed here with a download link.
Cameras were not allowed in Stelco however a few pictures were taken. Other photos are from retirements etc. Click here for Stelco Pictures Corrections or additions welcome.
