I joined Hewlett-Packard as a customer engineer in 85, and was sent to their training center in Rockville, Maryland that winter. This is a picture taken with some of my fellow trainees on graduation day. I really enjoyed my stay there, especially the weekend trips to the Washington DC Mall - Wong Sir
