in thread How to introduce 8 year olds to (Perl) programming?

I started writing terrible basic and qbasic code when I was 6, but didn't start actually programming til I was 16. You had computers at your school when you were 11?...lucky dog.

    We're talking Apple IIc computers :-) Maybe I was a bit older than 11, but thats what sticks in my mind at the moment. Also wrote a role-playing game in BASIC about that same time too. It did work. Though, I admit, I had help from my dad.

    You had qbasic when you were 6? Lucky dog. I did have computers at school when I was 11 but those were still Commodores, and we did logo on them (and played games of course).

[Eily]: that's not what I'd call a silent h :)
[LanX]: see soundfile https://en. wiktionary.org/ wiki/human# Pronunciation
[Your Mother]: Just Another Perl 'Acker.
[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German )
[LanX]: and I'm sure I read that *hotel* used to be pronounced 'otel by the English upperclass
