in reply to My first computer was...

My first computer (in the sense of "the first owned by me") is a Power Macintosh G3 (beige). Last year it got the company of a dual processor G4 1GHz (the loud one, but now quieter after I installed this exchange kit by Apple).

The first computer I used was an Atari ST 1040. My father bought it in 1986(?). But my sister and I were only allowed to play with it, if we also learned programming. That was then Atari Basic, DR Logo, later on we got also Pascal (in the variants of ST Pascal Plus and Pure Pascal). It is still working, but needs a really long startup-time due to the long memory-test-time, it was expanded several times.

I had also contact with a few C-128 at a computer course for kids at our bank, also at school (around 1988: Commodore (?)) and later the EUMEL-System, where we programmed in ELAN.

Funniest "porting project": I had a game called "Avalun", where you had to reign a kingdom. We printed the BASIC sourcecode and two friends of mine typed it for their computers. A AT (or XT, I cannot remember, one was the fast one, but we used the slow one) and for a Schneider PC.

[Corion]: This is vaguely inspired by that list of "nasty" strings, which I'd like to replace among HTTP parameters, just to see whether the application crashes, but also for easy downloading of a list of URLs etc
[Corion]: Maybe I'll just conoct something using Algorithm::Permute to create an (OO) generator for such requests, or a simple function.
[Corion]: For testing I imagine one would want to test a random sampling of such "bad"/"unexpected" requests, while for downloading, one would want to generate them all in order, but not necessarily as a huge list
