Computer hack here.

Computer hack there.

Computer hack everywhere.

In 1980 I was enrolled at Alexandria Vo-Tech studying computer programming.

Our primary instructor, Mr. McCoy, said this early on: "If carpenters built buildings the way programmers programmed computers ... the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization."

That was almost 40 years ago. Things have not changed.
