Almost there

I know this is dragging on to a silly extent, but we've almost got something. I've got to get a couple of more things unscrewed and then you'll be able to start reading.

(Why does this remind me of the first computer program I ever wrote? It took me about 12 or 14 iterations to get it to run and I was getting pretty frustrated by the end.

Hey! It's good to see another geeky post here. I get so much fun at this stuff! Would it be possible for you to write a little more about your programming experiences? Have you ever got to treat whit a "luser"?

Take your time on Wiz6, I can wait for it as long as you keep this blog updated. I'll be checking back from time to time.

Yes, I remember the first program I wrote was in Fortran in 1971. I was flabbergasted when I fed in the punched cards and didn't get the output I expected. Someone kindly advised me to get a printout of the source, which would come with error messages.

I think it took me only a few tries to get it working, but it was a pretty simple little program.
