When I first started work, I spent my time behind computers, ferreting about with wires and cables and generally fixing them. Then I was allowed to program them, losing myself in lines and lines of code and logic. This sometimes meant I didn’t see daylight, especially when it came to building the semi-supercomputing style systems, sometimes ending up almost inside them before they were ready to run my carefully crafted code.
Nowadays, I spend my working life in front of a computer, designing the systems that some other poor bugger has to ferret around building whilst some other poor bugger has to code from my designs.
I know, I’m almost drunk with power.
