in reply to I started with...:

I learned Basic from a quick reference chart and some computer game listings at a university lab my Dad was taking a class at (~1973). Wrote my first program (blackjack, what else?), and probably even saved it to paper tape. Sadness is trying to load a game from paper tape that took you a long time to write and realizing you probably shouldn't have folded it and put it in your pocket. :-)

[erix]: (maybe that means it worked)
[oiskuu]: Yeah, it might work as long as there are no root exploits. ;-)
[Corion]: Also, it's much harder to leak paper sheets than it is to leak documents that are available electronically
