in thread My first computer was...

I actually went to computer camp for two weeks one summer where they had TRS-80's. Any one else brave enough to admit to that level of Geekdom?

At the tender age of 9, I gave a lecture (at a kids' summer math camp) on the bus architecture of the Z-80. I can only say that because I didn't go on to become a geek.

I've asked my parents about this a few times since, because it seems so hard to believe. But they've always confirmed it. Then my dad found the actual paper: 3 hand-typed pages in a clear-plastic binder. Yikes!

[LanX]: hm just read an article on heise.de claiming that RPerl is 250 times faster. ... it's that even possible?
[marto]: under certain circumstances perhaps
[RonW]: as I understand it, RPerl "compiles" a subset of Perl to C, so I would expect the final executable to run a lot faster
