:flowers: I have visited here but never took the time to register and set my personal stuff till today...oh hummmm!!! Like my life was filled with such importance :thumbsup: . I purchased my first computer in 1982 when my son entered middle school...incentive to do homework :trumpet: . I paid almost 2 grand for a Tandy ex1000 and a dot matrix printer. It had no mouse, no internet and NO harddrive. Everything was DOS and had to be loaded with a 5 1/2" floppy whenever you turned it on. It did have the first "windows" desktop and was actually pretty fast since you only loaded the program you were going to use. Games were over 50 bucks a piece (lots of money then) and we waited patiently for our monthly "Byte" magazine that always had a new game to type/write onto a 5 1/2" floppy. It took four of us about three to five hours :) of typing, drinking beer, proofreading and editing only to discover the magazine had an error :inlove: . It wasn't long before we saw the errors and learned how to fix them :cool: without waiting for the next issue, did I mention drinking beer? I have stayed up on all the new technology and am considered a puter Guru by family and friends for recognizing and fixing home computing hardware and software problems. I need a new hobby :P !
