in reply to My first computer was...

I am probably the only niteen yearold around that can honestly say that the first computer he layed hands on was an altair 8800. My father bought it and and assembeled it. I remember switching one swith back and forth and watching the lights change configurations. Some how I knew it was counting (more and more lights were turning on) now I realize it was binary. I must have been very very young. I guess I realize why everyone here seems so much smarter than me. You guys have been involved in computers much? longer than I have been alive.
Much Respect,
-Herman
