The delusional world of Linux.

Recommended Posts

OK, since we're comparing the lengths of our, um, service...abacab, I was the guy your school would have called in to repair said paper tape machine, card reader or teletype console.

I have little nostalgia for that time, though, given that I often was covered in grease and ink by the end of the day - despite having to wear a suit and tie to work. 

But I spent my free time learning software, became a software support analyst and saved a fortune in dry-cleaning bills. I became the guy your COBOL instructor would call to complain that the compiler didn't implement register optimization the way he expected it to.

By the late 80's that had led to a career in programming, software and database design. Now I can wear the jeans 'n t-shirt uniform that I always wanted, and most days don't get dirty except when telling jokes.

I was a power user of DEC's EDT editor.  Once I found I could get a copy of it for the PC, I never used another editor until smart IDE's came out.
