My first calculator did not even have a decimal point - you had to be able to figure that one in your head! My first computer (bought for my kids) was 16k upgraded from 4K and had to be programmed by hand in basic. You could save programs on a cassette tape. My oldest boy is now a computer engineer with a masters degree and my younger is a skilled user in the financial field and as a hobbyist. My oldest (a daughter) is a software specialist in library systems. None of them wanted to follow in their father's footsteps (Ob/Gyn) due to the lifestyle and hours involved (probably the reason I have not yet submitted any images). I am certainly glad they have the opportunity to do these things!
