I followed a link in a CNET community news letter discussing startup programs. This has always stumped me as to where and why all of those programs appear at startup. Now I can find out and maybe trim things down a bit.

I have been programming and/or managing computers since the late 60s. Make that the Apollo programs Luner Module computer. A great way to learn Assembler. Most of my early programming was realtime systems for labs, mobile systems, or avionics systems. Lots of fun.

In my later years, I became involved with the Oracal DB design and SQL programming. Again this involved tracking realtime processes and tracking within a processing plant environment. What made it very interesting was that the plant was primarly run with robotics because of the radioactive nature of the materials being handled.

My degree is in Physics and math. Computer Science had not been invented whin I was going to collage. :thumbsup:

I hope to learn a lot about the internals of XP and the nature of the PC.

Hi Ed...

And welcome to BleepingComputer!

Make that the Apollo programs Luner Module computer.

Wow - I love anything to do with the space program. My birthday falls on the day that Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon. It had to be awesome to have been involved with that history.

I hope you enjoy our community!
