Probably if I had any math talent I would be into data mining and statistical analysis of data.
So, BasicCoder2, if there is anything in FreeBASIC which you have meant to 'get into' but did not have the time then the time is now.
Nope nothing in FreeBASIC itself that I wanted to 'get into'. It is more about a project that would require a program to solve.
Programming was essentially an offset of an interest in doing simple electronic projects and science in general and some mathematics was a requirement rather than an interest. As a youth I was fascinated by "thinking machines" and just had to understand how they worked whereas I think most professional programmers come to it via an interest and talent in mathematics. I am entirely self taught as I didn't earn my living in academia.
