Me too neither...:-)

The only formal computer tutoring I've had is when the firm sent me on
a Filetab programming course. My only electronics qualification is a
Radio Amateur Exam certificate - for what that's worth!

(Anyone in the UK see the BBC Open University tv program on the early
days of computer programming the other night? Plenty of film and
stills of early computers, including films of EDSAC, ENIAC etc and
interviews with Maurice Wilkes and other pioneer programmers.)
