And I used an IBM System 360 in the mid-seventies. With punch cards. My first computer was a Sinclair ZX81, for which I wrote a little assembly code in addition to its native BASIC. I've programmed a VAX in FORTRAN. Until the last couple of desktop machines, I have always built my own from scratch. Today, there's no financial gain in doing so.Computer security is part of my job. I started on mainframes long before microprocessors came along.
