*What kind of computer were you working on* ?
Well, in middle school ... I grew up in Texas but in middle school I
went to, we moved to Holland for two years and I went to the American
School at the Hague and they had a PDP 11 in a room in the corner.
*I don’t know the PDP 11* .
It’s a mini computer. This was right before, right about the time
IIs came out.
*I remember the Commodore Pet* .
I Don't Know the HP-35S.
I Don't Know the carburetor.
I Don't Know the Pinto.
I Don't Know the landline.
I Don't Know the Princess phone.
I don't know the Reverse Polish Notation.
I don't know it, but I did know it, for about 3 months.
I've forgotten more than I know. That's what long life means.
I remember stuff I never knew ... another old age affliction.
That's the truth. ROTFL
It's called an "opinion" because it's not a fact.
