Unfortunate, isn't it? Most of the people who are any good (in my
experience, anyway) are the ones who grew up tinkering with computers
(or calculators, JoeBar :-)) -- who grew up with Sinclair ZX-81s and
VIC-20s and Ataris and Commodore-64s... These days, many of the folks
in our business are those motivated entirely by $$$ rather than by the
coolness coefficient of working with 'puters.
