Jeez, reading this lot really makes me feel old!
The only computers that were about when I were a nipper were in the CIA, the Kremlin and MI6!
The first PC I ever used was an Amstrad CPC464 with a green screen and a cassette drive; I bought it as a main Chrizzie prezzie for my kids back in, at a guess, 1989 and spent the best part of a week leaning how to get the thing to work!
I've still got it somewhere, I belive, complete with a dozen or so games that the nippers used to play.
The odd thing is that now they're householders and parents themselves, they don't even have a PC in the house between them - I'm the only family geek!
