Back before the internet, I had more RAM in my brain, and memorized many things I don't bother to keep in RAM today. Smile | :)
And there were many less constructs to have to keep in memory, unless you were doing assembly language. There were a lot less instructions for that as well, but I'm not good about remembering cryptic stuff.
As others pointed out, we also had those marvelous things called reference books!
