I started with Apple Basic and 6502 machine code and Assembly, then went onto Fortran, Pascal, C, Lisp (Scheme), microcode, Perl, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, PHP, and Objective-C.

Originally, I was going to go with an Atari... but it was a big expense for my family... and after months of me nagging, my dad agreed to buy an Apple ][. At that time, the Pineapple was also available. The few months in childhood seem to last forever. A few months nowadays seem to pass like days. Those days, a computer had 16kb or 48kb of RAM. Today, the computer has 16GB. So it is in fact a million times.

comment Why air conditioner, dehumidifier, and heater all can lower the relative humidity?
I think I don't understand humidity, relative humidity, and dew point fully. So humidity is how much water is in the air and relative humidity is how easy it is for water to escape (from the skin) to the air? So what causes different dew points? Say if it is 20°C and humidity 60%, what causes the dew point to be different in California and in Asia and thus altering the RH? So most hygrometers, either one with a physical pointer and the digital ones, in general measure RH instead of humidity?

comment Why is there more steam when water is subject to less fire?
by the way, I suspect that even just water will have the same effect, as I remember just boiling some water in the cook pot and turn down the fire to lower level and keep it there, and steam came out a lot more than if fire was at high level

I thought if I look at the inside the flask and follow to the outside of the flash, it is all one piece of metal?

comment Can a battery charger be too powerful for a rechargeable battery?
so you mean R for the device (such as iPhone) is one thing, but the charger also add to this R in series
