This is a picture of me receiving my first real programming language, Visual Basic 4.0
, for Chanukah [a Jewish holiday, like Christmas in terms of gifts] in 1995 [I’m the one holding it, age 11, 5th grade]. I had been using QBasic
before that. I just thought the picture was too cute to pass up ^_^. The person next to me, Luis Merino
, was my best friend during elementary and middle school, and is the reason why I just found this picture. I’m flying up for his wedding in Salt Lake City, in which I will be a groomsman, this coming Tuesday :-).
