Early Microsoft Engineer Charles Petzold remisises about the early Analog days of Electronic music

    “ This is the story of how I eventually built my own electronic music instruments while teaching myself digital electronics, computer hardware, and assembly language programming. Roughly between the mid-1970s and the mid-1980s, this hobby (and it was never really more than a hobby) led directly to my being able to write assembly language programs for the IBM PC in the early 1980s, which led to my career at PC Magazine beginning in 1984, which led to the rest of my career. This hobby also gave me the background knowledge and understanding to write the book Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software (1999). “

    Hey man, heard you were your brother’s keeper
    That can’t be, judging by the way you treat her

    Oh no, you’ve done it again
    No use when you already know how it ends

    Treat her better, boy
    If having her at your side’s something you enjoy
    If having her in your life’s really so important to you now

    Hey man, who’s been keeping brother
    Hey man, how old is your mother

    Oh no, you’ve done it again
    No use when you already know how it ends

    Treat her better, boy
    If having her at your side’s something you enjoy
    If having her in your life’s really so important to you now [x2]

    Unfortunately the numbers don’t lie, youth voter turn out is down since 2008. Young voters support Bernie Sanders in overwhelming numbers, 86-14 in New Hampshire. That is massive, even better than Obama. Still, we NEED TO VOTE. We NEED to stay ACTIVE and involved! This political revolution is to make OUR country a better place, we need to quit letting 65 year old voters decide the future of our country. PLEASE REGISTER TO VOTE IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO ALREADY! BERNIE SANDERS 2016!
