    My first computer was an Atari 1200XL .

    It had a sweet floppy drive, a tape drive, and I used to mess around with that thing all day.

    Instead of going to the toy section in stores, I would gravitate towards the computer/electronics section

    Mine was a ZX Spectrum 48k with a separate tape unit and those wonderful rubbery keys!

    What do YOU remember about the 70's 80's and 90's?

    My parents bought me a Intel 386 as a present for graduating 6th grade. I used that computer until I bought a Pentium 3 - 500mhtz when they came out. I had that sucker so tweaked out and optimized, it was amazing I got half the things I had to run.

    What's a membrane keyboard Elmo?

    This picture shows you the membrane keyboard. Its basically two membranes or plastic sheets with electrical contacts between them instead of proper moving keys. I remember the contacts on the membranes would break quite easily if you used them too much

    Thats the chappy. Before I got a tape recorder it was a bit tedious as I had to program the games in each time I turned it on. I remember happily typing out lines and lines of code from a games magazine to play a very basic game. I thought it was great at the time though
