re: Do You Remember Your First Coding Experience? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

It was not specifically "coding" per se but the first time I felt I was "programming" a computer was while installing/configuring Red Hat Linux 5.2. I wasn't fully aware what that was or what it meant but I loved it.

I had to grab my monitor's manual to properly configure the vertical and horizontal rate otherwise it wouldn't really work.

Amazing how far we got. I haven't seen a manual in decades!

 

I remember doing this, too, with a desktop that my brother and I used to work on school assignments. I was trying to "upgrade" it once and accidentally uninstalled the video drivers...

He lost all of his book reports from that summer and had to re-do them all in about 3 weeks. Whoops.
