My dad actually minored in computer sciences, not computer programming. Computer sciences is more encompassing. The first PC we ever had, dad built from scratch.

Dad also enjoyed fishing, and was a tough, no nonsense kind of guy. He had a very sarcastic, dry sense of humor, and was one of the smartest people I’ve known. His other favorite team, when I was growing up, was the Pittsburgh Steelers. He loved pro football, but did not care for college sports.
