No worries mr senior! We all hope to get there, how old were you when BASIC and Fortran?


I was 20 and was in college.

It's hard to imagine today but that class was the first time I had ever been in the same room as an actual computer (a PDP-11 and an Apple II) and not just looking at one through glass walls.
