in reply to My first computer was...

My first computer was a 1989 Apple Macintosh SE that I partially rebuilt at the age of 7. After I fixed a few things, remounted the drive, and reinstalled new RAM, I ran it, and it worked nicely. I played many a game on it, including the original Lemmings. It's got a black and white screen, but I don't care, I love it anyway. I learned my first language on it (HyperScript), and first accessed the internet over it using the Apple Community.

Surprising as this may sound, it's sitting to my direct left, and still works to this day, despite its being made in 1989 -- and I even redid part of it so it's Y2K compatible! :D God I love this little machine. I swear, it's one of my biggest loves along side my girlfriend and programming.

[ambrus]: Corion: Is their budget estimate four times the initial estimate yet? Was the construction late by six months already three months after they started?
[marto]: I'll believe it when I see it. That's been due for many years now :P
[marto]: oddly the last time I was there I saw a zeppelin in flight for the first time
[Corion]: ambrus: I don't know how far the budget estimate has been overrun yet
[Corion]: marto: Heh ;) No, you were likely at Tegel or Schönefeld, the new one ("BER") will be somewhat outside of Berlin ;)
[marto]: Corion Schoenfeld, but my friend has been telling me about this new airport for about 7-8 years now :P
[marto]: I doubt it even exists as a building site :P
