Full Biography

First started programming back in 1979 (FORTRAN on paper tape!  BASIC on Mainframe terminal, and Z80 Machine Code!).
Became professional in 1982 (Zilog Z80 and Intel 808X Assemblers).
Started using C and Pascal around 1983
Used many other assemblers for embedded devices (microcontrollers and processors of many kinds)
Started using C++ and Ada around 1986
Started using Delphi when it first came out as Delphi 1 - best programming tool series ever bar none!  Still proficient in the whole range from D1 to Tokyo.
Learned (and largely discarded) many other languages over 30-odd years
Learned (and hated ever since) DXL in 2008 - IBM/Rational's (and indeed the world's) worst and most pitiful language
Now semi-retired and self employed and lazy
