    The first program 

    10 REM


    30 END



    This isent a 3 lined haiku, its my first program written in Qbasic on a 286 MS-DOS machine in 1993. This was the first step into computing. Had no idea that one day I will be here.

    10 years later, the anatomy of IBM PC’s was revealed in ‘IBM PC’s and CLONES’, a classic cult book by B.Govindraju. Surprisingly, the teacher who taught me PC Architecture had no idea how to generate sounds through PC speaker. It wasent her fault, its the bad education system we have.

      these are looking like music tones, great! I did not know it was that simple.

      The first time I generated sound in pc through programming was using C, if I remember correctly.. I specified the frequency and the delay time and it generated correct tone.
