I started my computing at a certain government communications centre just as Zilog Z80s and 8080s were appearing. I learnt low level languages first then having mastered the dark art of machine code, hex and assembly moved onto high level languages. My first computer was a Research Machines 380Z and with its 32K of soft BASIC it was the bees knees of the computing world. Now I have just spent the last few weeks going over a spec with my grandson for his Uni computer course. Quantum leap does not even begin to describe it. I wonder where we will be in the next 50 years? (I know where I will be and that's puishing up daiseys).
