    Default PC History Article

    I think that this part will be interesting for many of you. However and the rest of the article is fun (and educative) to read.

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...s,4518-23.html

    It brought back so many good memories, while I was writing it.

    How much time did you spend on researching and writing the whole thing?

    Too bad none of my old stuff was mentioned.

    First game console: ColecoVision.

    Second generation console: Turbo Grafx 16.

    First computer: Coleco ADAM, which, interestingly enough, had its power supply unit housed inside the bundled daisy wheel printer.

    I remember TurboGrafx but never ever heard of Coleco brand.

    As for the article it took me close to four months, plus another 2-3 months of editing.

    I really want to thank you for such a detailed article Aris, I learned a lot about the early computers and some of the later ones which I had no idea about as I wasn't even alive yet

    Thanks for the article Aris, very nice reading.

    The ~2000 years old Antikhytera mechanism is just mind blowing .
