JonComputing.com/.ca covers my background, interests and advice on Computer-related topics. The term Computing deserves a Page of its Own. There are more old Computing terms here.

I first used a Computer as a First Year Science student at UBC (Vancouver, Canada) in February 1971, in what may have been their first undergraduate Math class to use one. It showed me that computers were not, as I previously assumed, as boring as the Bookkeeping courses that I avoided in Junior High School, so I switched my Major to Computer Science, graduating in 1974 with a Bachelor of Science degree.

From Graduation until Retirement in 2007, I handled a wide variety of Computing roles, but was always a Programmer at heart. And I have continued into Retirement, never far from a Computer.
