AutoCad, and DataCad. Mostly circuit simulation and layout. DataCad is an architectual that I have fun with in building projects, can do a 3D walk through when remodeling. I designed an exterior one car garage with it with emphasis on minimizing materials, landscape blending, and home matching. Only had a small pile, hardly a box full of waste materials left over. It also generated a BOM so I could have a list at the building supply outlet. Was a fun project.
I am also into Finale, have a complete Kurzweil system wired in with over 400 voices available, but can only use 64 at any one time. Did get a copy of Beethovens original manuscripts on his sonantas, but only keyed in two so far. Takes a long time to program each note to get it to sound correctly, ha, too many notes.
Computers are great tools, from the slide rule and book of tables school. I only purchased one store bought system, but spent probably way too much time learning which components are the best and slapping together my own systems. Had several courses in basic and C++, but not really my bag.
Guess I fooled with Commodore 64's, Amigas, Apples, Macs, the NEXT, and finally ended up with PC's. See the NEXT is bringing good prices on Ebay, hard to believe how computers have changed in the last 20 years. Still like DOS, still hate Windows 95 and above, but have to go with the flow. I like Word 2.0 on a slow 386SX, runs plenty fast for me, still can only type at 2 wpm.
