Hey all...

I've been a junkie since joining Burroughs corporation in 1980. Back then I was assigned to maintain a Burroughs B2700 Mainframe which had just been upgraded from magnetic core memory to IC. It used teletype terminals for user I/O, and booted from a punched card deck. My first PC was a Timex/Sinclair 2000 with the expansion 16k memory pack. 20 minutes to save/load a 16k program. And I became well schooled in single command basic.

Now I am a chronic Sims modifier, and am adept with Simantics Language and Milkshape. (My sims are totally anatomically correct.)

I consider myself a silicon brain surgeon, but am extremely 'Software Stoopid'

I'm glad I ran across this site....and once again..Hey all!
