I had a little nostalgia on Saturday when Google placed a copy of the game Pac-Man on their homepage. I grew up playing Pac-Man and Mrs. Pac-Man so it brought back a whole lot of memories. I have very fond memories of the Atari 2600, it was an amazing piece of technology for it’s time. I can probably attribute the Atari 2600 as one of the initial catalysts for my interest in Technology and Computer Science. I remember games like Pitfall, Adventure, Pac-Man, Q*bert and Frogger.
I also remember wasting away hour upon hour playing Head-to-Head Football. I can remember playing against my dad and god father on many an occasion. It really wasn’t until I was introduced to the Commodore PET that I really became excited in technology. I can remember spending hours typing in hundreds of lines of QBASIC code, the introduction of the tape drive allowed users to load and save programs to tape. I was able to convince my parents to buy me a Commodore 64 which was my first personal computer.
What was the first computer that you ever used or owned?
