    1. I'm familiar with the main computer - you know - the device you type things into and you can see on screen, yeah?!

      Microsoft started thirty years ago and theirs was the first software. (The first commercially successful operating system softwre.)

      You must've been really skilled to be a computer programmer. And I wonder if I can be called a programmer if I just install new programs on a computer.

      I became a house worker that I am today.

      So, I guess you married a house, huh?, to become a housewife. Congratulations!
