Case in point. The year is 1991 and I have this great idea for a computer studies project. The task was to explain how the computer helped the process. We had basic Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and not forgetting Paint.
My project idea, was a date matching service. Based on a questionnaire completed by the people in my year. I was to match them on the Access database based on their likes and dislikes. I got a C and passed.
On to my A levels the year 1993, my favourite subject was business studies, it just seemed to resonate with me. I liked the researching, analysing, building something from scratch. So, my business studies course and my match making database seemed a great match, I started planning. However, I was told by one teacher that I’d be lucky if I passed, then the usual teenage distractions occurred. A year later I scrapped through my exams. Dating service was a distant memory. Until years later when Match.com and other online dating services became widely known. Damn, missed that one.
