02 GL1800 w/Auto Pilot
I got really good with Basic, started out with the Tandy all in one keyboard and TV monitor, and that extremely fast, 300 baud mag tape reel driveAnd gl.......... I would bet there are not too many of us left who remember boolean algebra! Or Pascal, fortran, cobol.......etc!
I learned machine code on my own, using the very first Motorola MEK D2 kit with a 6800 cpu, it was blessed with a Hex Keypad and Hex Display.... you read your program out one machine byte at a time.
then when we moved to Cedar Crest, I signed up at the university to learn C++ and that lasted about six weeks when my job transferred me again
ended up in Phx Fire Depart as an IT tech taking care of the fire apparatus laptops, GPS receivers, and the fire station computer setup that rang the bells, turned on the lights, and opened the doors....
the 911 call center was in our department, I hated that part of the job, stayed out in the field most of the time.
