Excerpt of article text...

I got my degree and I spent 15 years doing industrial controls. I did a fair amount of traveling. In engineering school we had to take some programming courses like assembler, Fortran, Pascal, but nothing major. But computers back then were pretty boring because they all had the silly DOS prompt interface.

In 1986 I had to do a newsletter for the fraternity I was in and for years we'd had someone on the school newspaper who had access to typesetting equipment. But we didn't have anybody that semester so one of the upperclassmen said to me, "Hey, there's these new computers in the computer lab I think they're called Macintoshes or something like that. But it looks like they've got some really cool stuff on them." That's what started my love affair with Apple products.
