Longtime readers of Computers in Physics may remember us as the editors/authors of the Numerical Recipes column that ran from 1988 through 1992. At that time, with the publication of the second edition of our Numerical Recipes (NR) books in C and Fortran, we took a sabbatical leave from column writing, a leave that became inadvertently permanent. Now, as a part of CIP's Tenth Anniversary celebration, we have been invited back to offer some observations about the past of scientific computing, including the educational niche occupied by our books, and to make some prognostications about where the field is going.
