So funny! I wonder how many people he amazed with his advanced skills!

Oh the nostalgia in this thread... Atari 400 was my first computer too - well a family one shared between 5 kids. Then on to ZX Spectrum years after. Those were the days

Hello, Everybody

Tom here, a new Muvizu fan.

I wish my computer story were MY story but it happened to my best childhood friend Don: Bought the original home computer the Altair 8800, learned computers, started a computer company, sold it, himself and most of his employees to Microsoft and retired at 50 a multimillionaire. I'm a poor but honest cartoonist, but at least I live in Hawaii.

My dad was in charge of the "data processing" department of a large financial company back in the '60s so I got to play with the big IBM System 360s and a lot of cool stuff. My first computer was from Korea--can't remember the name except it was the Model D--in 1983.

Keep up the good work!

My first PC has an Olivetti something or other in 1982 - had to pay extra for that 68k RAM model.

I spent weeks writing Frogger for it - I was really pleased although there was a bit of a time lag so you had to anticipate the traffic coming.

Then one day the tape got chewed and my fortune was lost.......

Ah well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Here's my contribution:

I have to say, I do quite fancy a Tech-Sketch Light Pen.

Preferably without the demonic child...


If you haven't already, you really should try that link - I want a Penril Modem! And 16k of Raw Power!! And I think the demonic child is actually plugged into the mains by accident...
