(DIARY:PROGRAMMING. Strange. The second programming language I learned was assembly. IBM mainframe, DEC mainframe, PC and Tandy Color Computer – all at about the same time. And whenever I work in anything binary or hex, my memories of that time period are more vivid… almost as powerful as ‘smells’ produce vivid memories. And subconsciously I want to write everything in pascal and assembly the same way the generation before me wanted to write everything in fortran.)
