  4. 4.  Gates was attracted by the machine and how it would always execute software code perfectly. When he reflected back on that moment, he said, "There was just something neat about the machine.  One of these systems was a PDP-10, which banned but Gates, Paul Allen, Ric Weiland, and Kent Evans were caught for exploiting bugs in the operating system.  At the end of the ban, the four students offered to find bugs in CCC's software in computer. Rather than use the system via Teletype, Gates went to CCC's offices and studied source code for various programs that ran on the system.
  5. 5.  The following year, Information Sciences Inc. hired these four students to write a payroll program in Cobol, providing them royalties. After his administrators became aware of his programming abilities.  At age 17, Gates formed a business partnership with Allen, called Traf-O-Data, to make traffic counters based on the Intel 8008 processor.
