First professional experience was PL/I on IBM 360/95 modeling heat flow through a nuclear reactor core section and Assembly language on a HP 2116 at Argonne National Laboratory in 1968 for data collection.

Then went to work for GTE after Nixon got elected and axed R&D budgets where I was programming the IBM 1800 in Assembly and a touch of Fortran II. Modified the be-dickens out of the 1800 MPX operating system including writing a printer spooling system, developing support for the 2314 disk drives, bi-sync communications to IBM 370/158 and 168, and developing real time multi-programming/multi-tasking OS'es including assemblers for Data General Nova and GTE Tempo II computer, all while going to night school at IIT and studying languages such as Lisp and Univac 1108 assembly language.

Managed to get married, buy and remodel a house and have 3 kids. I'm not sure if I ever slept.
