I started way before PCs existed on mainframes with Fortran and punch cards etc

First breakthrough I handled at work a was an Osborn "luggable' took two of us to get it in the boot of a car.



I still have my first home computer - an Amstrad PPC 640

I started off with Netscape as it was about the best browser for pre- Power Macs.

Before Macs I was using a 386 and before that it was Wang computers... May be showing my age here...

Archie was really a kind of search engine - on the Internet before html and www.

It all reminds me of the gear on the Julian Assange telemovie not so long ago ...

Michael Sy - I knew/know a lot of the people from early BBSs, computers and hacking in Melbourne and many of them are in the book - Underground: Tales of Hacking, Madness and Obsession on the Electronic Frontier is a 1997 book by Suelette Dreyfus.

I have a signed hard copy but its been available free online (naturally) for years - http://suelette.home.xs4all.nl/underground/justin/index.html

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4686

If you want quick - heady - feel of what it was like back then read this chapter - Mendax was/is Assange - as you know - http://suelette.home.xs4all.nl/underground/justin/chapter_8.html

A little bit of background research seems to validate you've said.

 

Respect.

All this talk of 386's and 486's is bringing a tear to my eye! Ahhh the memories...I remember getting excited when games would be on TWO 5 1/4 floppy discs. shog[1].gif

Come off it fxh, those look like BBC props mate. Where do you put the dylithium crystals? ;-)

I was relatively late to computers, a Mac II was my first PC. Before that I lugged something like this around:

Right up until about 1996 that was.

Good for you Sherlock. I don't think there's been much of a history of bravado & BS on this thread - you'd know this if you'd bothered to read back six months or so rather than jump in all guns & unnecessary questions blazing. Matter of fact I think that you would have learned that FXH knows his shit on a number of fronts & therefore a bit of common sense rather than 'background research' would lead you to show some respect.

damn post verifcation crap, i cant edit my post. 

 

I dont have a car atm which makes the place a bit difficult to get to. Is there a place in the city that is good as well?

There was a little sign at regents tailors that said something about dry cleaning but I forgot to mention it while I was there.

Sinclair ZX81 was my first:

 

 

 

Came with 1k of memory but I splurged and got the 16k expansion pack you see attached to the back of the machine above.
