Comment My experience (Score 1) 704 704

When I was 12 I asked my dad to buy me a ColecoVision to play games, but instead he bought me a Spectrum clon, which shipped with BASIC.

It wasn't until my first BASIC lecture at school that I got attracted to programming. After it I went home to try the code I had just learned. I think you can't force him, he already has the tool... what about the lecture?

It is better to never have tried anything than to have tried something and failed. - motto of jerks, weenies and losers everywhere
