  • Apple IIe for me too!

    My husband and I were recently having a discussion about Oregon Trail and the other "choose your own adventure" type games we played on the old computers in elementary school!

  • It was the size of a room at MIT and you had to put a piece of paper into it that had holes in the paper.... I dont even know what I was doing but my father brought me there to "show me the future"

  • I am sooo old. The first computer I used wasn't a personal computer. When I was in graduate school in the dark ages there was one huge computer for the whole university housed in a big, air conditioned room. To use it you had to make cards with you information/data entered and give them to the guy at the window who fed them to the computer. In two or three days later you would get your print-out in your mailbox.
