First Computer

I got my first home computer something over 20 years ago. No hard drive, I just swapped various floppies in and out for data, software, even the operating system -- which, of course, was DOS, which meant (of course) that I did everything from the command line, which I took for granted.

Floppies, five and a quarter inch floppies, yet!

I never dreamed of being online, and accessing the bulletin boards which were out there in those pre-WWW days. Well, technically I could've. But I couldn't have afforded it. Chalk it up to living on a student budget.

How far we've come in 20 years! Makes a body wonder what computers will be like in 2030.
