I just turned 70! Fortunately, I spent most of my career as a Boeing engineer being involved in computer systems, mainly flight simulators, so computers are not new to me. In fact, the first simulators I worked on had computers with individual transistors on circtuit boards the size of a kitchen counter top. We had a 747 simulator with all the three crew positions, a full 6-axis motion system, a complete west-coast radio environment, weather (including thunderstorma and wind-shear and four simulated engines., The couputer that ran it all had only 64K memory (equivalent to 256K these days). It ran at 30 Hz, not KHz or MHz. 30 cycles per second was the slowest frame rate below which pilots could detect flicker in the instruments.
I retired in 1998, soon after Boeing merged with Douglas - what a disaster that was. Since moving to Anacortes in 1999, I've worked as a bus driver for the local transit agency for a couple of years, but decided I'd rather be "properly" retired.
DW and I are both ex-pat Brits from Leyland (Lancs), the home of the original double-decker bus, so it's fitting that I did go to work as a bus driver. Our local transit agency is predominantly small-town/rural, so there's no call for double-deckers!
Before we emigrated, I worked for about 18 months as a development/test engineer at Norton-Villiers and was involved in the Norton Commando and AJS Stormer programs, so motorcycles are also in my DNA!.
