Re: Wild West Days

Same (ish)

1997 with an A level.

Had to pay the teachers 50p to even look at the internet and 10p a minute after that.

All they ever talked about was mainframes and punched cards, and reading directly from the paper coursebook which was written in 1980 something. to the extent that 2 entire years complained that none of what we were doing was useful or relevant.

Got marked down in my final coursework for writing a webpage which told you if your "hot or not" matches were geographically (By IP address) close. Could have been the first Tinder i tell you...

Ended up writing an shitty, but acceptable book selling DB (Heavily inspired by Amazon) :)
