The story of the Univac, the author
I'm Jan Lindeboom, now living in Leeuwarden in The Netherlands.
During this project I lived in Dordrecht and the computer was located in my school, the Christiaan Huygensschool in Rotterdam.
After finishing at this school I continued my education for a higher degree in electronics,
but since I was used to working autonomously, I did not fit in a school-system anymore,
so I left early and I trained myself in programming microprocessors.
I worked for Holland Automation International Limited in Dordrecht,
where I programmed applications and later system-utilities and operating systems (HAI-Basic).
The last programs I wrote were accounting-packages.
In 1983 I had a severe accident. While hang-gliding in Wales I crashed and damaged the right frontal lobe of my brain.
In this accident I damaged my personal hardware which I needed to write complicated structured programs,
due to the fact that I lost my ability to think spatially.
Also I became chaotic.
I tried several times to use my skills in simple projects and with much effort I succeeded in building some business-applications,
but never succeeded in staying employed for a longer period.
However, in the beginning of this century I found that EEG-Neuro-Feedback-training could improve my health.
