I had to take fortran in the late 1980s. It’s a great deal like BASIC. I taught myself how to program in BASIC, but no need for either it or fortran in years..I’ve built a large number of computers for people. It’s safer to do that than to try to put up with the screwups that the premade ones seem to love. HP, for example, seems to love spyware, but claims it’s to help the user. Snort.
