I started with Apple Basic and 6502 machine code and Assembly, then Fortran, Pascal, C, Lisp (Scheme), microcode, Perl, Java, Javascript, Python, Ruby, PHP, and Objective-C.

Originally, I was going to go with Atari... but it was a big expense for our family... and after months of nagging, my dad agreed to buy an Apple ][. The few months in childhood seem to last forever. A few months nowadays seem to pass like days.

comment Why mkdir -p /Local/Foo/Bar/Wah not work but cd /Local and mkdir -p Foo/Bar/Wah works?
I see why that issue is now. The person didn't update the docs in a wiki at first. For simplicity, he wrote it in Microsoft Word first, and that's how the "em dash" creeped in.
