  Abstract: It's really hard to believe but, I've never taught a physics lab without using some sort of computer interfacing equipment. As a 25-year veteran teacher, doing labs with Vernier data-collection technology has been a career-long process. In my small college setting, I can have students do very traditional problem solving labs, PER-Activity Based Labs or I can even have them create their own student designed and driven experiment. Computer Interfaced Lab Equipment has enhanced and supplemented my lab activities for the past 25 years. This talk will discuss the origins, the changes, the advancements and what I now consider the best practices for using computer technology in the introductory physics laboratory.
