Bleeping Computer has been a great help to me and I thought I should say Hi! and Thanks!

I got started working on computers waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 1992. My first system was a Zenith 386 SX20 with 2 MB of RAM and an 80 MB Hard Drive. ((It was a rocket) or at least I thought so)

I ride a 1967 Harley Davidson FL, hence the name fl_rider. I have owned that bike since 1974.

Thanks for all the great information here at Bleeping Computer!!

Hey, at least your first computer had a hard drive; some of us remember using computers with 64K ram and a tape drive.

My first computer had 16K and tape until I got a floppy drive for it. A friend started out with 4K and tape.
Then I put together a IBM PC Clone with a 8Mhz 8088 and dual 360k Floppies, followd by a 80286 at 10Mhz then 386SX, 486, etc.

At least you had 64K to start.
