I've played with computers since before the pc came out.
I started on a Timex Sinclar 1000, the screen was our TV, recording media was a portable tape deck and you used basic.
My first program was a 2-d alpha numeric Rubics cube ( no colors, just numbers and letters )
The second was a spreadsheet, when I finished I showed it to my dad, and he said so?
I said " you could do your taxes on it" and he replied "Why?'"
