  1. my left ear really enjoyed this

  3. Years ago at Sanderson High school in Darwin (1984) I got access to the mainframe computer while in class. The technicians who were there had a hard time trying to figure out which terminal was causing the mainframe to work overtime. I actually had to show them how & why this was happening . All this happened because I didn't want to sit in class & play the silly games that we were expected too. I wanted something more intellectual like programming & data gathering. They had limited resources with regards to the OS & thought that there wasn't going to be any trouble networking 20 statics off one main. There was a problem because the main had not enough power to run 20 statics with one asking permission to read it's data files in return for anonymity. In the end I had to show them about the BBC Acorn Apple Computers pathways. I found they neglected volume parameters, data encryption & permissions. That was pretty good for a young man of only 11 years of age who was extremely interested in computers back then & how they worked.
