  • First real at-home computer I was around 8 (1980). Before that we connected to a mainframe over a terminal with sockets you set the phone into. Was also around then our school got its first computer. You had to pass a test to be allowed to sign up for 10 minutes of Oregon Trail at recess.

  • We got an Apple when I was about 14 yrs old. That was 1994. It was great. It came with a disk where you could look at all the animals in the San Diego Zoo. I was easily impressed! lol. The first PC I got on was at school tho about 5 yrs before that. I think I took that same test NP to get to play those few precious moments of Oregon Trail!!

  • My Dad had a Commodore 64. Ive also had a computer in my home ever since I was born (88). I got my very own personal computer when I was about 9-10 years old or so.

  • It would have been around 1991. I know I was playing tradewars on the library computers when I was in junior high and I think we got our first pc in 91 when I would have been a freshman. Anyone else remember BBS's and using pine for your mail?

  • Our family's first computer was a Commodore 64. I thought it was so awesome! We were way excited!! I believe that would have been in about '94. We were kinda behind the times.
