I can read that and I'm not a programmer. Too much time in class playing with a TI-82 calculator! :)

The first computer that I was exposed to was one that you had to feed punchcards to, in high school.:D The first computer that I actually owned was an IBM XT dual floppy, no HDD. Boot with a floppy, then swap out program discs and data discs as needed. Then came the Wyse 286, a clone 386, a clone 486 (that my kids currently mess around on), a Pentium 150 Compaq laptop (still have), and my current P4 1.7Ghz.

We used to play a lot of Pong at my buddies' place. He had some other games later, but I don't remember exactly which ones. Spent a lot of time playing Asteroids and Galaga at the arcade. Kicked butt at Asteroids. Pinball was my game though.

Damn I'm old.:rolleyes:

I had a TI-99, a C-64, a C-128 with a 1200 baud modem, spent many a long night on BBSes with that thing. That was back when most modems were 300 baud. Then I swore off computers until 1997. Now I have 3 of the damn things here at the house. All functional and each one equally annoying in it's own way.
