    Default What was your first computer?

    So guys, what was your first computer at home? At work?

    Me? I had a mechanical computer as a boy, some 42 years ago, my first home computer was a Timex Sinclair that I wrote games on, and my first PC was a home built 386sx that I had to buy a coprocessor for. Ah the memories...

    Doh! I'll do a search before I post such a question again. Interesting note here, though:

    I worked for the first industrial robotics manufacturer in the world and "knew" Joe Englburger (forgot the spelling, heh) as because of him I worked my way up in his company into QC. We had some heavy duty computers, but what they were I cannot say...

    I just thought it was funny that even the subject was the same.

    I remember as a kid visiting one of the offices where my dad worked. In the center of the office was a room with one of those big computers that took up a whole wall. It had reel to reels on it that just spun back and forth and back and forth. In the center of the room was a single dot matrix printer and a monochrome monitor. Most of the people working in that office were actually in that "computer room", probably trying to figure out what the sheets of tractor feed paper were saying.
