Ha !

I first started programming having about 8 years if I recall correctly.

My father bought a computer and wanted me to play some games. Instead, I started hacking some marqueess in html.

I perhaps dissapointed him, but when he understood what I did he bought me books on visual basic, and later on I took over the book buying business on my own, spending most of kidcash on Wiley's.

Good times, good times...
