in reply to My first computer was...

My first computer equipment was a 300-baud modem and a Heathkit terminal (which quickly had a modified Domino's pizza box and a long ribbon cable added to make the keyboard detachable). The first computer I owned was a Sinclair ZX-80. The next was my current Athlon. I mostly used computers that I didn't own.

    Slightly offtopic, but I have a Heathkit amplifier that my father built sitting on my desk. It is honestly the coolest thing he ever gave me. Apart from half my DNA, of course.

    I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
