Ancient Brit. Renegade Geordie who's lived in Hampshire for 50 years. (Like a Hoosier living in Mass.) Have used computers since starting on the Atlas back in the early 60's. Hope some time to reach average user competance - but time is running out.
I used Extended Mercury Autocode on the Atlas, Elliot 803 Autocode on the Elliot 803, Basic? on Telecomp, EMA and Fortran on ICT 2500, Fortran on Marconi??, RMBasic on HP, and nowadays MS on PC's. I keep looking at C++ and Visual Basic but there is some reluctance to learn another language - time is running out.
