I agree Yes it's nice to slat a DVD and have auto-play and
all that but the fundamentals still scratch at the back of my
head and that is what keeps me reading as many books as
  I can about our computer history and learning code. I love
learning all the original codding and play with a sodering gun and a
board. But more than anything to me I love BASIC coding...
A happy 2016 to you all!
