Title: More a Hi! than a comment
Post by: mikemwgmoody on September 14, 2018, 02:33:58 PM
I worked on 'proper' computers (ones the engineers got inside to fix !) for over 15 years.

In my time I have worked as an application programmer, a systems programmer for IBM systems (MVS &VM).
Plus a bit of UNIX (Amdahl's UTS) and communications software (TCP/IP). That included tracing and capturing
network traffic much of which rather surprising travelled as clear text.

I don't use internet backing or shopping (or indeed cash machines or credit cards ).
Inconvenient as it is I go to the bank to get and pay by cash/cheque and just hope the banks IT security is robust.

Progress 'Bah humbug'.

Although I expect (hope) things are improving.

A bit out of touch in light of the times. :) Probably still using Windows 3.1. :)
