1986–1989
My first programming experience, on my friend's Atari 800. Beautiful.
1987–1988
We had Apple ][e's at my primary school. I was too young to fall in love.
1989–1992
My first computer, an XT clone came with a copy of Turbo Pascal 4. My father was adamant I learn a 'proper language'. Turbo Pascal is your ugly cousin who inappropriately rubs her knees against you at dinner.
1990–1993
We had BBC micros when I started at high school. She was the only girl at school who would talk to me.
1996–
Started using her for what was then called 'DHTML' and now is just called HTML. She is all talk no action.
1996–
I have used BASH every day since I installed Slackware '96. Possibly my one true love.
1996–
I first learned about Awk in Dave Taylor's 'Teach Yourself Unix in a week'. Once I knew about her, I had to have her.
1997–
Pike is a harsh mistress, but boy is she athletic.
1998–2000
For a while there I was seduced by the dark side, but she doesn't know how to treat you right.
2002–2006
I had an intense but furtive affair with XSLT. In the end she dumped me for HTML5. Bitch.
2003–2004
My sugar-mistress for a while there.
2005
Tcl hit on me, but I spurned her affections.
2005
Python and I spent a little time together, but we knew we weren't right for each other.
2006
She was always trying to take our relationship to 'the next level'. I guess I'm just a higher-level kind of guy.
2008–
I write Ruby every day. She is my newest flame, and is a seductive and busty mistress.
