I was 12 years old and stumbled into a Radio Shack. There they had a brand new TRS-80 (Model I), all alone, switched on and the manual right next to it.

And no, my parents had no computer before then. They thought I was crazy and did not intend to buy one, so I scraped together the few bucks I had and got myself a kit like this one[^] and built it myself. Actually it's still work in progress. Just last week I worked on a graphics card with a second CPU, so that the main CPU finally can run at its maximum clock frequency.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
