Proud of the fact that you could sort punched cards faster than anyone? Still got that CP/M boot disk "just in case"? Admit your age and post pictures and stories from the good old days.

My first computer was an Ohio Scientific "Superboard" with Motorola 6502 microprocessor, 2 k bytes of static RAM (you could fry a small cat with the heat put out by that "large" static RAM bank!), and BASIC-in-ROM as the only "operating system". File storage was on cassette tape. A black-and-white television was the monitor. No sound.

Next was an Apple II+. Same processor, more RAM, two 5-1/4" floppy disk drives.

Next was a 386 laptop PC.

In 1996 I discovered Linux and never looked back . . .
