    I remember how excited I was when I turned on my TRS-80 and saw the curser blinking.

    That was really all it could do, as it came with a cassette recorder (30 baud transfers) for storage and had 4k of ram. Yes, 4,000 bits. We didn't get extras in those days like modems.

    Mine was a AMD 486 DX2 66 4MB RAM 420MB HDD. Upgrade path was 4MB -> 8MB -> 16MB -> 32 MB, MS-DOS => WIN3.1 => WIN 95.

    In the last few months of usage, was able to go online with a 33.6 modem & Netscape 3.

    It seems like we can somehow judge a person's age based on the PC he/she first used

    I don't know the name of the PC anymore as I was still a kid back then. I remember I still have to put a floppy disk during start up. It was the first Windows OS with GUI. Anybody know this?

    Ahh yes, back in the days of the turbo button

    My first pc was an IBM something... cannot remember its physical specs but it did also have a turbo button

    My first computer was a Commodore 64. Man I loved that thing. We got it really cheap from a relative as the dataset port was fried. Ordered one from a few states away, had it replaced and had a good old time.

    I remember trying to find anyone who was going to a big city and asking them if they would pick me up the magazines with the old basic programs in them. Man, I loved that stuff. Nothing like making a dragons head appear and then finding out ways to morph it. Those were the days!

    Anyone remember recording radio transmissions to tape - and relatives just wondering why the little idiot (me) was listening to hi pitch noise on the radio. That was funky.

    i Think i used to use check mails on yahoo using dos
    it was too difficult and imagine you have to that computer again with black Screen
    you will laugh at yourself

    i think I.T. has too much developed during these last 10 years
    the main role in this prosper the credit goes to
    main companies like Microsoft, Intel, IBM and HP.

    This thread has stayed open for the past 5 years or so, which we're thinking is probably long enough.
    Having problems, or maybe questions about WHT? Head over to the help desk!
