    I use to have a Sinclair ZX - it plugged into the TV for a screen. And I learned BASIC computer programming at High School on the TI - they had them networked in the classroom. Very high tech!
    My Dad worked for IBM - so had an IBM p.c. at home in his study - queue flashing green cursor.
    I guess I am officially vintage!


    Wonderfull to look at those ads. Tempora mutantur nos et mutamur in illis.
    Makes me dream of my first PC computer. That wasn’t a Apple but a Apricot. Really. 1984. with a portable printer!!! An a infrared Keyboard !!
