I am reminded of the wise words of a mentor from a project back in the fall of 1983. I wrote an amazing computer application for the Farm Business, Planning, & Analysis (FBPA) initiative of BJVS (now Buckeye Career Center) under the amazing, insightful gaze of Farmer Brown.

In fact, I still have the newspaper clipping announcing the purchase of a Victor 9000 PC and printer along with my programming services. It was written in BASIC. The following year I rewrote the input screens in TurboPASCAL to allow for faster and more accurate data entry.

Much like today, that was a lot of work.
