What was your first computer?

Anil Dash put this nostalgic question up on Twitter, a question that has been posed many times before. (See here and here, by way of example.) Ours was a Macintosh SE, like the one pictured below, which our parents purchased for us as a graduation gift during our senior year in college. (We needed a computer for law school.)

    My first computer, to be technical about it, was a Commodore 64. Even though I only had it a week. I returned it (I can’t believe the store accepted it) because it’s BASIC language was so poor. Then I bought an Atari 800 and stuck with Atari for a number of years after that. I wrote my own word-processor on the Atari.

    By the way, your blog software is pretty particular about the format of the URLs when leaving comments! If I don’t put http in front, it raises a stink.

    I see you’re going back to your old ways.

    My wife and I also started home computing with a Commodore 64. I remember our first word processing program was named Paperclip. http://www.pcmuseum.ca/details.asp?id=474&type=software
