I have spent the last 50 years doing IT work. Much of that time I was lucky to work in not-for-profit shops or in circumstances where money was not a issue – my customers or employers simply wanted the best work we could produce, regardless of cost. I realize this is not the norm in the business world, but it produced some remarkable systems.
I have decided to document some of my own experiences, hoping to encourage others with similar backgrounds to share their ‘computer war stories’.
