    From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) :

      Troglodyte \Trog"lo*dyte\, n. [L. troglodytae, pl., Gr. ? one
         who creeps into holes; ? a hole, cavern (fr. ? to gnaw) + ?
         enter: cf. F. troglodyte.]
         1. (Ethnol.) One of any savage race that dwells in caves,
            instead of constructing dwellings; a cave dweller. Most of
            the primitive races of man were troglodytes.

Anyone who is old enough to have used a PDP-11 is a troglodyte by today's standards. Punching cards? Ewwwww! Like, ewwww! (Use Southern California 15 year old accent on that Ewww...)
