    My first computer I ever used I belive was an Apple of some sort and no I never did program on that.

    My next computer was an AST Advanture/Advantage 60/60 and I used that one until up to a little less then a year ago. Now my brother owns it.

    In my closet I have an intergrity. and the sweet thing is that it works, though I have no clue on how to use it.

    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.

    speccy 48k.

    it was the tops..bbc had no decent games out, and the c64 came out slightly later if i remember correctly.

    I can also remember the wavy lines at the sides of the screen and the god awful noise it made.

    But the games-oh wow.


    I even had a thermal printer for it. Couldnt afford a 'micro drive' though-they were expensive.
    Such is life.

    i feel the need to quote weird al...

    "You think your commodore 64 is really neeto, what kinda chip u got in there a dorrito?! Your using a 286 don't make me laugh, your winodws boots up in what a day and a half, u can backup your whole hard drive on a floppy diskette, your the biggest joke on the internet. Your database is a disaster, your wax'n your modem trying to make it go faster. Hey fella, i bet your still living in your parents cellar dloading pictures of sarah michelle geller."
