Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

TRS-80 Color Computer I

It was 1982, I was 12 years old, she was... oh I dunno? 1 year, maybe... Oh sure, I had seen other computers before then. Even played on a mainframe one summer at UVa. But this one was mine, all mine. I spent hours (possibly days) typing in code from Rainbow magazine. Mostly games, but sometimes utilities. I bought every conceivable expansion known to man.

*sigh...* Good times.

thank you Z-Man for this trip down memory lane...

I'm jealous!!! I didn't even touch a computer until college. Put it this way, the first time I even started programming was when the .NET Framework was in Beta. Man, I feel like a youngin'!! I also feel like I missed out on some kind of childhood. It seems like all my programming friends remember these relics. Not me though :(. C'est la vie!

I got my CoCo2 when I was eight with all the birthday money I had saved up. I still wonder what on earth possessed me to do that. Was it love at first sight?

I never had the coco 2, just the original and the coco 3. The obsessive collector in me always wanted one, but well... ya know.

I blogged about this very thing the other day. I just bought an Atari 800XL on ebay the other day because that was the first computer I ever owned. Every spring, people tend to remember their first loves. As you aluded to, for us geeks, our first love was typically a machine.

A first love always remains in a secret place in the heart.
