Quote of the Day
On Wednesday, May 15, 2002, something I said in an email discussion on Studio B's computer book writer email list was featured as "quote of the day" on Elliotte Rusty Harold's Cafe au Lait website. A screenshot of my quote on the Cafe au Lait home page is below. If you like, you can view an archive of all 2002 quotes. On Wednesday, June 26, 2002, I made quote of the day again.
Following is a text version of my quote:
My kindergarten-aged son often uses the family computer by himself. The Microsoft Magic Schoolbus games are currently his favorites, and he runs those under Win 98. Periodically, his games will just up and quit on him, dumping him back to the desktop. You should hear him then. He's developing quite the vocabulary<grin>. I didn't learn to talk like that until college when I became a programmer...
