Just to date myself... I remember playing Star Trek on a TRS-80 at a local Radio Shack. Later I learned to program in Basic on an Apple IIc. I remember it was controversial when a chip company (Intel) took out ads in the USA Today for their 'new' 386 chip. Unheard of at the time for chip manufacturers to market directly to consumers. :D

I had a Texas Instruments TI-99/ 4a (gasp) and a cassette tape recorder to save my basic programs that I wrote. It didn't save them very well, so I had to always type them in!

And then I had to walk to school, uphill, both ways, in the snow.......:D
