About Me and Computers
My experience with computers started with a Tandy 1000 and a children’s introductory BASIC programming book from the library. I got hooked on tinkering with GWBasic, and soon the Tandy BASIC quick reference booklet was all I needed. I had access to a TRS-80 Model 100, so even on long car rides I could find novel ways to toggle pixels. BASIC was my mainstay for a long time. When the family got a 486 PC I discovered QBasic. I got deeper into QB and began toying with Visual Basic into high school. I experimented with assembly programming on my TI calculator using a hacked ROM.
