Just an old-timer who occasionally engages on minor programming tasks, mostly industrial automation devices.
At work I provide Broadcast Support Engineering services, that includes IT support - not on development but on what lies between the chair and the keyboard and a myriad of boxes that shouldn't BSOD but still do every once in a while.
At home I am just a user of Mac OS and MS Windows, a little bit of a hacker with Linux and a full fledged programmer of old late 70's to 80's vintage 8/16-bits stuff that still manages to boot up once power is applied.
I was even contemplating at one point of adding "Assembly" to that list of retro programing tools, but besides looking a bit pretentious (me? pretentious? ) it also can bring certain doom as I would be stepping into the 4-lines ID zone... much ruin to the clean & careful flow of equally spaced threaded list of message posts in the forums.
What to do?
If I keep up this it won't be long until the Message Repost Police throws the handcuffs on me, and that's the last thing an old timer needs. Really.
I'll come up something. This note to serve as a reminder that once, RogelioP was the one that dared go into the 3-line ID zone, and not happy with just quoting an active use of good ol' GOTO and GOSUB laden BASIC these days of Visual-Something tools, even included a reference to LOGO within the ID, what can I say? I thrive on the trailing edge of technology.
