Quite frankly I hated computers, probably because everyone else I worked with seemed to know far more about them than I did. (They were more interested in them as well.) I understood all other forms of engineering but coming from hands-on engineering, computers seemed abstract to me. However the first one I worked with was a Burroughs Mainframe and after that came DEC PDP 11s with UNIX operating systems. I can remember the reel to reel tape drives, Winchester disc drives and all the air conditioning temperature control and standby power from that era, but thatís about all. I suppose a modern PC would have more computing power now.
