Computer programming experience:
I started programming in 1960 with a university course on machine coding of DASK - a huge water cooled vacuum-tube based monster with 10k RAM and 5-hole telex-tape in-/output! In '64 it became GIER-ALGOL programmes for the transistor based GIER computer, where the communication was papertape via a 10 char/s Teletype. Huuh, it was fast! Later on I programmed in BASIC and FORTRAN, and for programmable calculators from HP and TI. In '88 I got my first real home computer, a NewBrain with 96k RAM, for which I wrote programmes in BASIC and PASCAL: games, utilities, a budget programme, and a word processor. Next step was an Amiga 500, where I wrote more games, utilities, and a database programme. Now I'm using PCs and I'm writing programmes in mainly MS Visual Basic 6 Pro, and databases and large macros in MS Access and Visual Basic for Applications and PHP/MySQL. An example of a public available programme is AcosHelp written in Visual Basic 6 Pro and PowerBasic for Windows.
