    The overhead in programming today to make it “pretty” for the user is the problem Rita, The core programs look pretty much the same. A One is a One and a Zero is a Zero. A Brick is Brick not a board.

    Go back to the Memorex Telex dumb terminals you saw in War Games on the Green Screen data only and the programs ran faster over 4K memory systems to boot. But Data only is not the game anymore.
    So point is invalid Rita.

    I remember learing to write code in both “Octal” snd “Hex”
    “Lean and Efficient” were the principles we had drummed into our heads. I look at what they’re writing these days and have no question why there are such “security problems” with Systems. They are swollen, gravid monsters of re-written, re-modified, code, kludged together by people from a dozen different committees working at cross-purposes but each of them ALWAYS trying to ensure they’re own Job-Security.

    And THAT doesn’t work any way!

    (The Job Security, I mean)

    That’s not the reason. The reason is my wife has become more of an administrator / “the boss”.

    @Agent54

    I think you understand the way Rita thinks. There are a lot of Ritas out there complicating things.

    The world must look interesting through your eyes.

    funny thing is: years ago, the computers were used for word processing and spreadsheets; today are used for the same thing, and even though the programs do the same as years ago, and have thousands more memory and cpu, they still use the whole computer resources to do the same as the computers of decades ago

    @redback

    But they’re “pretty” now.

    I still do most of my word processing with vi.

    @ghostkeeper

    Wave a hundred dollar bill in her face. That’ll put a stop to it.

    @Clark Kent

    I could use an app for my cell phone to screen out calls to stop sales calls from the same stupid places every month.

    I am just vague on what exactly Rita is asking for in an app?

    One that’s not so lousy that it will actually sell.

    Math books were probably better back in 1968 than they are now. The old math books will cover important things like consumer math, which now you have to get a separate book for, and they will have helpful tips about studying that are lost to time.
