Wow! I had no idea Amanda! I've had computers since I was 5, predating my favorite C64 with a "Spectrum 16". Heck, my parents got me to WALK using old calculators that had the green vacuum tube displays. I STILL love that color hah! 🙂

I loved my C64 so much, and I worked all summer to pay for a $300 5 1/4 floppy drive for it. It was so worth it. I had a 300 baud modem and I paid $75 for lifetime access to the best local BBS, which turned out to be for the lifetime of the BBS instead of my lifetime.

pentium II is the best I can say. thing was mega fast comparatively when we first got it, though.

My C64 still works. I run an emulator on my Mac when I have a bit of nostalgia because my immediate gratification ass is not going to accept waiting 5 minutes for a program to load.

Well, let’s say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. Based on this morning’s reading, it would be a Twinkie thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds.

Thanks for the walk down memory lane! I also had a C64 back in the mid '80s and ran a BBS with a 1 meg drive – I though that awesome back then.

This whole comment thread is making me want to re-listen to "Ready Player One"..even though I only finished it a few days ago. Nostalgia!

My first computer was an Atari with a 6502 processor. I think a cassette deck was my first mass storage device but soon graduated to a floppy disk drive. Dialed up to a local Atari club BBS. But, there were so few lines that time was limited to 30 minutes. Later subscribed to Compuserve. Anyone remember that?

Who remembers the Koala Pads? We had Apple IIes in my grade school, but I never met anyone who owned one.

I ran a BBS, you know right? 😛 Two lines, international callers and over 1 Gig of software, documents and files. Yes, I just said 1 full Gig!! lol…really just a bunch of CD drives and two hard drives. Don't forget this was in the early 90s.

Actually…what if I said this was recently…I don't think it would be as cool lol.

I tried Prodigy. Seems like it only worked on IBM PCs and I didn't have ready access to one at that time. But it was sort of a ground breaking service.

I still have my dot matrix print outs from Prodigy. I am thinking about donating them to the Smithsonian one of these days.

lol I ran LORD on my BBS. I also ran that space trader game (can't think of what it was called?)…a mafia game that my friend developed and a bunch of other really bad ANSI/ASCII graphic games. Ah the memories! Nothing matches downloading the newest 0-day pack and checking out that fresh .NFO file lol
