I have had a computer at home since 1975 and yes that makes me a silver surfer. My first pc was a commodore pet which had no hard or floppy drives. It had an audio cassette deck for recording to and used the very first basic language. I gave up programming when I could buy progs on disk that were far better than I could manage. I am now retired and build pcs for friends and family. I try to repair pcs for those that get them messed up. I do this for no charge other than parts required as it is my hobby.

Those cassette drives were slow as molasas, but really reliable.
