Part of the training for this, I’m sure, came with the years of problem-solving he did for IBM as a Programmer Analyst. His Software-Brain has now been upstaged by his son, but Rej has always been more of a hands-on person… Picture a group of IBM employees standing around with question marks on their heads about having to take apart a computer–and they call in the Blind Guy to do it for them.

I think he lost about two more just in jumping up and down about it.
