Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

^My great-grandfather on my mother's side was a Croat borned in Austro-Hungarian empire in some town somewhere close to the border of present day Croatia or Slovenia. Not sure about the name and on which side of the border is that town now. After WW1 he moved to Serbia, got married, became an Ortodox Christian, and his family in Croatia renounced him. Especially his parents, so he didn't go there until they died.

My mother told me she went there once with her father when she was a child and met her cousin/uncle.

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

That's sad.  It's said that blood is thicker than water, and while that's true one can choose their friends not their relatives.

I cringe when I hear "you have to respect him, he's your (insert family member type here).

HORSE FEATHERS!  Respect, no mater who, is something that must be earned.
I FEARED my father and stepfather - there was ZERO respect there!

KUDOS to your great grandfather who followed his heart!

I totaly agree with you. It needs to be earned.

People become superficial and think you have to respect someone only because of his relation to you or status and not by quality of his soul. Many loose their souls in persuit for materialistic values and goals.

Respect is when, on the greatest cold, when the minus bites,
and the penguins begin to fall into unconsciousness from the winter,
you take your hand out of a warm pocket to wave at a person.

Unfortunately some think that respect is when your parents ask: "Do you want me to beat you with a cord or a belt?"

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Ok look, I admit it, I have no rights to be here as I am a spring chicken compared to you you guys. I am only 58. I wondered if I could perhaps become an honourary member?
I started on computers aged 13 at school on a teletype connected by accoustic coupler to Birmingham university (UK). Birmingham university taught me Mnemonic Assembly Language and BASIC, at age 14 I applied to a large corporation for a summer job in their computer centre. I was working as a Computer Operator on IBM 370/158's and 159's
they told me to apply for a job when I was 16 and they would employ me. Aged 16 I was in charge of the printers on the day shift - I operated the first laser printers in a commercial environment (as opposed to a test environment) in the UK. Aged 18 I became a computer operator working on shifts and spent my spare time and even stayed behind after work to test my COBOL and BASIC programs that I loved writing. I stayed in operations though as I preferred learning about the hardware and the operating system  rather than programming.

AFAIAC you are welcome in the Club Lounge, but don't sit in the comfy chairs by the fire, and definitely don't eat my biscuits ( aka cookies! ) from the kitchen cupboard big_smile

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Ok heres a question.
Back in the 1970's when I was just a little kid, our computer studies teacher said "By the time you kids grow up the computer industry is aiming to have a computer in every house", well we all fell about laughing and just could not accept that within 10, 15, 20 years, whatever, every house would have a computer system. This was because computer systems back then took up the size of a football field, besides, what on earth would anyone do with a computer in their house? Soooo, the question is, will there ever be a time when every household has quantum computers in them? will there ever be mobile quantum computers?

They would need to be mobile to stay above the rising sea level sad  We may have more important things to do than worry about personal QC's!

Mind you, if they can get them working at ambient temperature instead of churning out gigawatts of heat from the cooling systems, they may come up with a solution by using them, just in time hopefully smile
