Re: 31,743 BYTES FREE - COMMODORE COMPUTER VERY OLD-SCHOOL
My first computer was a TRS-80 Z-80 CPU with 4K RAM, cassette tape recorder for loading/saving programs. Learned BASIC and ASM programming on it. Doubt many snowflakes could program without a compiler these days. I had to look up instruction OP codes, calculate addresses for JMP, CALLS, etc.

My best program was using the EXT I/O lines to control my dual deck cassette recorder. It even included a database of what songs where on which tape/side. A primitive media player by today's standard, but advanced for its day. The only issue was that tape tends to stretch after use so index marks would have to be updated.

AS400? What about the IBM360? I learned COBOL and JCL on that thing in high school during mid 70's. Nothing like using card punch readers and waiting for the print job to see the results of your program.

Although, there might be some truth to the John Titor story. As CORE memory is resistant to EMP. The only computers running post apocalyptic nuclear war would be 60's/70's computer tech.

I owned an Amstrad CPC6128. I've even cracked Exolon and Roland In Time and gave them 255 lives but I couldn't share that Z80 Assembly knowledge with others since I was a kid at the time and there was not any kind of way to reach the community except maybe through magazines :-(

Ah, magnetic core RAM, I've only seen from images. The only 60's/70's computer technology that I have seen from close it's a WANG mainframe with the huge drive units and the humongous main unit and the old-style terminals :-) and during my national service I've seen the HAWK missile system CPU (60's technology) that was made with the wire wrap technique! This would have magnetic core RAM but I've only seen the CPU rack :-(. I am sure this was a nightmare for my fellow engineers of that age. I am happy that I have used CAD/CAE systems that eliminate any errors to the minimum during the design process although mostly as a hobby since it is almost impossible to find a job in the electronics industry in my country since it is small and it is like a closed club :-(

Studied computers in the mid-70s in high school. Our school had a DEC PDP-8/e and an 8/l. Teletype terminals with paper tape. First program was written in BINARY and toggled into the front panel of the 8e.

In college I worked in a semi-private on-campus laboratory that had a DEC PDP-11/34. DEC VT-100 and Televideo 910 terminals. Green/black Tektronix 4000 series graphics storage CRT, HP drum pen plotter, Summagraphics tablet.

First company early '80s, first program was on an ISC Compucolor computer in ISC BASIC. Also worked with DR-DOS and QBASIC.

First major project was on an Intel SBC system running iRMX-80. Programmed in PLM. Debugged the operating system at the same time as the application, from microfiche listings, in conjunction with Kodak in Rochester NY.

Company had an Apple MAC when they first came out. Used it mostly for MAC Project. Developed a dislike for Apple products I harbor to this day.

Being a computer engineer by trade, I had no use for a computer in the home. My father-in-law gave my wife a succession of crappy computers that confirmed my desire not to be bothered with them. We had some of the early cheap/free dial-up internet, including Erols, Juno and NetZero. First computer bought new was a Gateway 2000 running Windows 3.11.

I believe I still have my Windows 95 CD somewhere...My first 80x86 PC was a 486DX@80MHz with a 40MB HDD and 4 (or 8, I cannot recall) MB of RAM :P. Until then I had my old Amstrad 6128 since I was 7 years old. In the in-between time I wanted an Amiga 500 but it was too expensive for my father to buy me one. Anyway, I bought a new old stock Amiga 1200 although I don't have the space and time anymore to dig in deep into learning this machine :(. Maybe when I get very old, I'll find time to spend to my small collection of old computers (Amstrad 6128,Commodore 64,Amiga 1200)
