How old were you when you first used a computer?

I think I was like 8, but I'm not sure. I know we had a couple in my elementary school, but they were basically only used for printing things. I didn't learn to type until I was 13 or 14, and I wasn't comfortable on a computer until I was about 10 or 12. That was mid-90s to early 2000s.

  • I was in high school before I used a computer on a regular bases, and that was for printing. I was in my 20s before I started using the internet.

  • I remember playing Oregon Trail with the school computer's back in the day...with floppy disks lol. So...definitely school age, but can't think of a year. Plus, my dad use to bring computers home and repair them. I'd type and print out school projects, but yeah, years are fuzzy.
