Comment Why Bother? (Score 1) 433

I'm 56. I've been in the computer business for 32 years. I have no college. I've worked for 3 companies, one very large and 2 very small. The small companies hired me for my skills which I developed at the large company. My current title is Field Applications Engineer. The 6 figure salary is not bad. YMMV.

When I was in high school in the early 70s, we had a terminal (teletype) connect to a HP3000F through a 110 baud, acoustic coupled, modem. It ran HP time-shared BASIC. There was 4 or 5 of us that figured out how to make it work. In '74 they offered a "Computer Science" class. In the 1st 6 weeks of the class we had 5 teachers and none of them new squat about a computer. We had to teach them how to work the terminal. Easy A though. ;-) Of course we had to walk 10 miles to school, in the snow, up hill, both ways.........
