I had a "ghetto blaster" like the small one on top. In fact, that was its name since I placed letter stickers on it stating so. Smile


Soundwave had a ghetto blaster. Who knew?

I played my very first computer game on this called Oregon Trail.


Ah, Oregon Trail - another perennial school computer lab favourite. Many a school period was wasted on this marvel of software...

For myself it began in the 80's... and boy did it carry on into the 90's... Lemmings, Star Control...

I had a Comodore 64 and wrote a Space Invaders like game to it.
The basic procedure to load the game from K7 was "Play & Pray" Smile

I had one of this too:



It had 2K of memory. Soon, I expanded it to incredibles 16K. HAL9000 was not a match to it.

Here are a few 8-bit computers that I had in the 80s:



I was a Spectrum owner that really wanted a C64. Dammit Dad!!! Laughing

It was on the trusty, Speccy +2, that I learnt about programming. Great times.
