Biggest influence in my life

Once in the early eighties I read an essay in `80 micro' (or some other TRaSh-80 magazine). The author (sorry, I forgot his name) started to worry about his way of life when he realized that he was trying to solve the problems with his wife using assembler programming. This startled me and I began to think about my way of living. After years of thinking I came up with a conclusion: I switched to Turbo-Pascal.
