    In 1969 I majored in computer science for a while. In 1970 I took kind of a break and tried to go to school part time In Jackson, MS, and work at a bank up there. I was miffed that after 6 months I was slated for a raise that would just bring me to what my contemporary got hired for. I quit and went back to full-time school in Hattiesburg, MS. I was studying Math and Computer Science and thought that should count for something.
    At graduation computer programmers were starting at $500 a month... about what I was making tax free flying in a combat zone as a USAF SSGT... two years earlier. I changed my major to Math and got my degree in that.
    Back then we had the use of an IBM 360 and used punchcards to make our program inputs for testing our programming. A portable calculator was the size of an IBM Selectric typewriter and I had no idea what one cost. The Math department had one, but I never got to see how it worked. I can't remember if it was an HP, TI, or IBM, either.
    My first calculator was a few years later with red LED's and 4 functions with NO memory function. I know it cost around $100 or so, too!
    If we had had home PC's back then, I would have been more interested and kept with the computer science, but our teachers were terrible and at least one was on loan, maybe, from local business and we all struggled with his class in BAS or machine language. I didn't have a clue and we colluded on a lot of things. We got some kind of credit if we got ANY kind of output... printout... from our program projects for grades! That was most disappointing.
    Later in the later 70's after I got my first Radio Shack TRS II with 16K memory, I really liked Basic programming and played with that a lot. There wasn't much available for software, besides business oriented stuff. Games were text and your memory... no action shoot'em up stuff with graphics early on.
    I could edit some of the BASIC programs to alter the games... add "features" and extra stuff.
    With smart phones, we can do just about anything that a PC can do these days... from any place with a phone signal. 5G promises to be 50-100 times faster... can't wait!

    walked into a bar

    A capitalist walked into a bar and sat down between Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. Just then, the 10PM news came on and the lead story was of a man on a ledge of a skyscraper preparing to commit suicide.
    Bernie looked at the capitalist and asked, "Do you think he'll jump?"
    The capitalist replied, "I bet he will."
    Alexandria and Bernie both shot back, "Well, we bet he won't."
    The capitalist placed $10 on the bar and said, "You're on!"
    Just as AOC and Bernie placed their money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building. AOC and Bernie were very upset and bitterly tried handing their money to the capitalist.
    With a slight smile, the capitalist said, "I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he’d jumped."
    Alexandria replied, "Well, we did too; but we didn't think he'd do it again."

    I took a FORTRAN class in 1983 as a college requirement. I didn't like it much, but if I'd stuck with it I probably would have grown to appreciate it. And if anyone had told me I could have made way more money doing that, and if I hadn't been a ******* back then, well...

    I still have the Casio (or is it Sharp? I need to dig it up) calculator with green vacuum fluorescent display that my dad bought back in the '70s. It runs on an AC adapter or batteries and still works.
