You think you're old?
Here's MY first computer-
I invented it, in fact!
But then the U.S. Army took it away from me
They renamed it "Eniac", but I always called her "Mom"....

Did I say I was still using the Tandy? Huh? Did I? Huh? Huh? I didn't think so...

You hated the song because mommy wouldn't let you have a dog.

"Have" does not mean "use". Did you fail reading 101.

- 404 - Use not found.

I guess that we're down to 5,so here goes

Ooppss,I guess that I missed a page or two.. That's the story of my life..I had a couple of those old computers also,so much fun to program a game from the magazine and not have it work and then have to go back thru it line by line,only to discover in the next months magazine that it was a printing error.

Grew up in Olympia,Wa in the fifties when Rand was installing the computers at McChord AFB for the early warning system.Heck,what was a computer anyway.Three floors and three computers,1 per floor.One working,one hot back-up and the third was repairing itself.

Depends on the context-
Slickest correctly interpreted your post, Freudian slip though it may have been...
There's no need to be ashamed that your secret is out!

I teach reading 101

I had my little Vic 20 up to 5 years ago when a few of my friends and I decided we were going to try and over clock the processor . It was huge in it's day ,
1 mhz . Well that didn't work out too good,smoaked the board and the little computer saw it's last day .Now it is in a land fill in Tallahassee.

It could have been the adult beverages also.

Back in `85, I put an add-on board on the Tandy that took it from 4 mhz to 6.5 mhz.

Does this thread even have a topic any more?

You should just stop posting and let me kill it now.

Geez I didn't think you'd be that touchy about the Tandy! I didn't even shorten the name! As a matter of fact I did fail reading 101, maybe because I was reading between the lines.
