"Recently, Richard Friedman started writing about his 40 years of
experiences with computers     .
This reminded me that this month is my 30 year anniversary of being a
computer professional, so I thought I'd reminisce about my formative
years. With 30 years under my belt, I can also now officially go by the
moniker of old curmudgeon."
30 years is a long time. I got my first computer in 1995, so a decade for me.
