My second language was Turbo Pascal, after BASIC. I loved that language.. I was 12, trying to create games.. 320x200x256 raw graphics, stitched together with ASM. I actually created a photoshop type program to edited my "proprietary" raw image files.( I just added a larger header to regular raw graphics files) all in DOS with a Hyundai Super 286 AT 12Mhz 40 meg HD, 4 meg of ram and a 2400 baud modem.

I am actually suprised so many people on here think these guys are so "smart" , "engineers", or "scientist".. I'm not knocking them, but I think Grant is the only person on that show that is smart.. and is capable of completing a full thought. These guys aren't idiots by any means, It's just sad when average is seen as something special.
