I've been working for 10 years as embedded C systems programmer. However, my best memories of computer programming was in the calculator! Working for big organizations doing software development does not necessarily mean that you become a hot shot computer programmer. On the other hand, the opposite is true. I look back at that edifice now, and seeing the poor souls who are left there still trap in that limbo, tracing programs made by other 'higher races' and cleaning up their mess. I am going back to my TI-89T now,.. do code on it, and clean up *MY* own mess. Now, that's a worthy goal.
