Aleph Beth Gimel or Alpha Beta Gamma: Ancient Bearded Geek: I started in computers when I was 14, developing a routine for infinite-precision multiplication by a divide-and-conquer algorithm. Worked with Altair, Imsai, IBM System/360 and 370s, AIM-65, 9091, Sinclair ZX-80, CDC, Sun Microsystems SPARCstation workstations, LSI-11, PDP-11, Sperry Univac, Data General, a host of dec VAXen, Symbolics native Lisp machines, IBM AS/400, et al, GOKHM?
Owned and worked with Commodore PET 2001 (a great external-equipment controller on the IEEE-488 bus), Apple, Macintosh, and several Wintel PC computers, and probably others I don't remember.
GOKHM assembly languages, a transfinite number of different versions of BASIC (I like the string manipulation), Lisp of course ... I think that's enough for now ... NuP?
