In response to Lee Bondle's letter in the August issue, I would like to say, yes, computers can be treated from a user's end only point of view. But to continue the analogy that was used, if your user's program crashes or you need to modify it you would have to take it to "the shop." Stop and think how much you spend in simple repair and maintenance of your car, just because you cannot do the work yourself because of lack of knowledge. Knowledge is the key to power and knowing how to program your computer can be doubly powerful. What I am trying to say is that, while the computer can be used like a terminal, from a user's point, it is far more to everyone's advantage to know the whys and hows of your computer. And also less expensive in the software area. Thanks for listening and keep printing the best Apple II magazine.
