Unfortunately, I grew up in a poor family with no father as a result
of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the Korean and Viet Nam wars, so I
didn't have one of those when I was growing up.  Nor did I have a
TRS-80 or a Cromemco or even a TI calculator.  I didn't encounter a
computer that I could work on until I was about 20 years old.  It's
different being a girl from a poor family who grows up on the west
coast than guys who suckled on MIT electronics like a lot of east
coast people apparently did.  I was encouraged to learn how to type
and to balance a checkbook.  My first job was babysitting when I was
11 years old, not building a computer in a garage.
