    Finally saw TRON, the 80's version the other night. The SFX didn't look too shabby if you ask me. The leading lady looked very attractive in her glowing jumpsuit. They were still using command line operating systems, but I don't think it was MS-DOS or VAX/VMS. I seem to remember there were a few others around at the time. I never realised computer programs were living things with their own personalities. I thought you had to be a dead clever computer programmer to code something like that, probably a contractor. I hope all mine are alright.

    That's made me think: I worked on some big industrial planning and condition monitoring software in the late 80's.
    I wonder if it's still being used?

    I know Information Builders is still producing the FOCUS 4GL, so maybe my creations are still working.
