I only took one programming course during college, FORTRAN, and LOVED it!  This was during the 1970's and everything was punched cards.  So when my account ran out of money, I would fish through the trash can in the computer lab to find JOB cards with valid account numbers.  That was easy because the JOB cards were pink and all other cards were beige.  I continued programming in FORTRAN for the rest of college using other peoples money.  (For you younger programmers, you had to pay for computer time in those days.) Just in case someone discovered what I was doing, I would usually submit the cards and leave, then return a couple of hours later to retrieve the print out.

I agree.  I am currently writing my first USB program, and it is amazing how complex the communication protocols are for USB.  The old serial (RS-232) protocol was much simpler.


While tools have improved to make things easier, designs are becoming much more complex.  The amount of knowledge required to implement designs has significantly increased compared to the days of old.

Obviously your train of thought was cut off -- I think you meant to say "A burst of sparklingly witty conversation that brightens my day and lightens my life."

You're welcome :-)

@MB...mention the fact that Gweeps are known to be fond of bacon and I am sure he will chime in :-)

Sure enough, Max chimed in, not  that Max ever really chimes in. It's more like a burst.

@David: ...mention the fact that Gweeps are known to be fond of bacon...

Ah ... maybe I am a Gweep

Reminds me of the joke where a cat is walking outside its house in the middle of the night and it hears a rustle in the bushes, so it says "Whoever is in the bushes come out right now!"

And this small mishapen man-like creature comes out. And the cat says "what sort of creature are you?" And it replies "I'm a goblin." The cat says "I've never heard of that before, what does a goblin do?" The goblin replies, "Well, sometimes I stand outside the house singing songs, which sound horrible to humans and keep them awake, and other times I sneak in through the catflap and throw-up and crap all over the house.:

The cat thinks about this a while, and then says, "Hmm, maybe I'm a goblin too!"
