Move along, nothing much to see here.


This is retiree spacetime, anything you discover is guaranteed to be ! ( cool && interesting && relevant ).


My title changed over the decades: variously, Systems Programmer, Systems Analyst or Senior Analyst. And even though the word Computer never appeared in those titles the essence of my job was simply to program computers.


When I arrived as an undergrad the state of the art was punched cards and line printer paper. Programmers splayed lengths of printer output on a table and used colorful felt-tip pens to annotate the program listing (and perhaps their shirt pocket as well).


In time I may describe my work.
