When I was five years old, I wanted to learn how to read. Afraid that I might get bored in class if they'd allow that, my father decided to teach me how to play chess and my mother showed me how to get our Commodore 64 to repeat my name over and over.

10 PRINT "VIRTLINK"
20 GOTO 10

I was much more interested in the Commodore than in chess and from Commodore Basic through QBasic, Visual Basic I worked my way up to C#. This was all self-taught until I decided to follow an education in Computer Science after getting my Building Sciences degree.

I have a bachelor's degree in Building Sciences (BBE) and Computer Science (BSc), and I am currently working on getting my Computer Science master's degree.

comment Why doesn't the space bar have anything written on it?
Yeah... no. By that standard your Tab and Backspace keys should be blank too. Unless you have a DAS keyboard (or severely worn down the keys) I doubt that's the case. This is not really an answer.

comment Why do washing machines have windows?
If dishwashers had windows, there would be less people thinking it fills to the top with water when operated.

comment Is there an easier and more user friendly alternative to CAPTCHA?
+1: I was just thinking the same. You could make it 500 ms even without much trouble, making it for even more spam bots a lot harder.
