Re: Re: Windows Question



Yip,

And I still remember the days 25 years ago when I debugged programs by
manually punching holes and filling in holes over my typos on a TTY paper
tape. And before that on five hole tape.

If nothing else, I can still pretty much remember all the 7bit ASCII codes
by heart. And to become king of the mega geeks, I still impress the exam
hungry M$ certifieds that I can call out the hex for any ASCII character
they throw at me.

Knowing the whole Z80 instruction set in hex was another claim to fame. Who
needs an assembler?

Ah, those were the days.

Got to go. It's time to take off my slippers and go for my stroll in the
park ;-)
