The first computer I ever used didn’t have enough memory to remember my name. In fact, I never even saw it, and the only way I could access it was via a really slow modem connection (sub–1,200 bits/sec) and a green-screen terminal in my high school computer lab. But I wasn’t complaining, as that setup allowed me to learn the Basic programming language using a mainframe computer located more that a 100 miles away at Dartmouth College. At the time, no other high school in NY State had the equivalent, and few colleges were as well equipped. When was that? Well, let’s just say I’m going to miss That ’70s Show now that it’s off the air.
