First home computer was an Atari 400 dad brought home one day. First 'real' computer I ever worked on was an PDP - 11................. those were the days.

I had a Sinclair ZX81 with the mighty 16k ram pack...Pure Magic at the time. I still use ZX81s to explain the power and storage of modern pcs to a mate.

I tell him what my new pc is and he says "Yeah but how many ZX81s is that" I give a phone number like number and his eyes pop out!

3d Monster Maze ftw!!!

My first computer was a Commodore 64 with a Datasette tape system in 1992-93. I still have the original Microsoft instructional manual that I bought by mail. I bought the computer in a pawnshop, in Brisbane, Australia first. I tried to plug it to a black and white portable television but I couldn't start it. I went to a charity thrift shop where I bought an old monitor. After I received my instructional manual, I went out and bought some connecting cables and connected it to the monitor. I bought brand new audio tapes for the datasette and in five and a half hours, I was saving data on tape.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to my underground Lair. I have gathered here before me the world's deadliest assassins, and yet, each of you has failed to kill Austin Powers. That makes me angry, and when Dr. Evil get angry, Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset, and when Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset people DIE!

But years ago, when I went down to see my Gran, I used her old computer, an Amiga 500
