I'm also one of those people who has a very tolerant spouse. We married each other over 46 years ago. I, too, started my career programming (my first project was to write a Fortran-like compiler that generated a proprietary assembly language for an airborne computer) but later transitioned to administration of computer systems. I had plenty of late night and all night sessions while programming - started off with Hollerith cards on the IBM System 360. Computers are still my "other wife," my real one says. I, too, am retired and well-enough off financially.
