Renew... or review?

I used to write Batch scripts on Dos 3.3 when I was 11 (ish?). That's as far back of computing that I can remember.

back in the day, The first ever 'app' as such i wrote was in 1977 or 1978 for a programmable calculator. it was to calculate 'step milling' increments for gravity dies to produce pistons, and saved the guys in the drawing office many hours of manual calculations and re-checks. shortly after i wrote a prog that monitored water and gas usage in a foundry, and the beast i used was a video genie PC (Tandy TRS-80 lookalike) that had 2 floppy disks, (i think they were 160kb or maybe 320kb) and 8kb memory, but i persuaded them to purchase another 32kb ram that came in a unit roughtly the size of a shoe box with its own power supply lmao. ahhhhh those were the days when being a programmer had a certain sorta mystique about it, people actually thought u were intelligent and the word 'geek' had still to be invented :D

I got kicked out of Radio Shack a few times for writing a simple "What is your name" input/insult program. :P

386's on display...

It was funny to see the looks on the customers faces, because they must have thought it was an in-store demo.

My first finished program was a math program that did the pythagorian theorem in C# and displayed the results around the picture of a triangle.

I freaking hate it when people say that... Whether it's true or not. Or even close to being true.
The first thing I really wrote was a batch script to load maps for Jump n' Bump.
