I stare at my laptop in mounting frustration.
I spent my entire working life in Information Technology.
Everything I ever learned is painfully obsolete.

      My first serious job was with an IBM 1401 2nd generation m/c, before the 360.
      It was bigger than a really big thing and faster that a really fast thing – we thought!
      It was the first computer I had ever seen apart from on Doctor Who.
