I design and build Grant and Program management web apps for SAIC by day and I design and build the best place to find US dressage scores online for horse shows by night. The first computers I programmed on were an IBM 8088 and an Apple 2. I graduated in 1986 to a Mac-Plus...

(What's the most powerful computer in the world? The one people use.)

... then I upgraded to dual floppy drives (Chuck Yeager Flight Simulator required it), then upgraded to a 40 MB HD (all my MIDI programming demanded it). I was then seduced by the PC-dark side

(What's the most powerful computer in the world? The one that has software to run on it.)

In 1990, I discovered SAS, SPSS and Statistics. So while I'm a .NET geekarchitect today, I'm also a kick-butt SAS-Ninja-Shadow-Warrior as well.

comment “How to succeed at”
@TrevorD - The overwhelmingly typical American usage of the word "university" is as a part a proper noun. "I am going to Harvard University" or "I went to the University of Georgia". University is much less often used as a generic term for post-secondary education in general. In AmE you would rarely hear the phrase, "Where did you go to university?" Whereas the alternative, "Where did you go to college?" or "Where did you go to school?" is much more likely.
