Computer Programming

I loved the technology and learned how to program it to do all sorts of record keeping in a database program called dBase II.  I learned some programming in high school in the late 1960’s. We used the languages of Basic and Fortran which we encoded into a paper tape that was fed into a teletype console connected to a computer at Dartmouth College via a very slow dial-up connection. In college I moved on to briefly study assembly and machine language that was encoded into punch cards which we carried to the computer lab to have the programs run. I knew then that I was in over my head. I love technology but that stuff made my hair hurt. I was much happier in the darkroom.
