Retired Computer Consultant who designed and built custom software for BIG business in NYC.
I AM Sheldon!!
I and several other computer programmers I worked with were attending an IBM seminar in the late 1970s. I was sitting in the back of the room. The instructor asked "but who is going to write the program for the life support system?" I raised my hand, and several of my colleagues turned around and pointed at me.
Oh wait; that's not Sheldon, it's Howard. My bad.
