GeneralHow much computer illiterate were you when... [modified] Pinmember d@nish 31-Mar-14 5:43 
...you wrote your first program?
 
In my case, I had no idea what operating system is. I did not knew I was using windows. Hell, I could not even start a computer. It was really scary. However, if someone could open the "black screen" for me, I could write C++ programs for them.
 
This was the state for a long time. I was proud of myself thinking I could do anything in C++ but had no clue how to reach that black screen. I say anything as I was easily able to understand concept of pointer and templates and was even able to do graphics code. I thought I was awesome back then in year 2000.
 
How about you?
 
Edit: The sole purpose of this post is to feel young. Poke tongue | ;-P
