Started with a Spectrum 48K in 1982. and since from there to a 8088 then 486DX and since then things are fuzzy :D

Started using unRAID about 7 years ago and indeed it has been like going back to childhood enjoying tweeking my PCs.

TRS80 Model I  then Model III

C128

Amiga 3000

386SX,

Then lost track of all the various CPU platforms (But all the x86's have been named in alphabetical order.  Started at Anna, and now up to Patricia.  And I still wonder why the wife gets annoyed when I start talking to her about how Ophelia and Patricia are doing today)

Yes thanks to all you guys (or gals) your time and effort are greatly appreciated!!!!

 

I started with the Timex-Sinclair 1000 and hung on to their line until the IBM PC Jr came out.. then on ward and upward from there.

 

So as far as all the developers and forum moderators, who actually works for Lime Tech and who are just in it for the addiction?

AFAIK, only the red text Administrator group get a paycheck. Everybody else is just here for the great software and community.

Seconded - gridrunner's videos are very helpful.

 

Also thanks to the LT team, of course.

 

And in keeping with the flavour of some of the other posts - I soldered up my ZX80 from a kit in around March 1980 (ordered at the launch in the February) just after Uncle Clive got around to sending them out.  Then built my own RAM pack, serial interface, etc. It's been along road from there to here, but one hell of a ride.  Wouldn't change it for anything.

*486 DX2 66MHz. I know because I lusted over it, only having a 486 SX 33MHz.

My first computer was a Tandy 1000 SX. 8088, A whopping 384KB of memory and a 5.25" floppy drive.

Oh and thanks LT! And thanks to the amazing community too.

Ha ha. I used a Timex Sinclair. As you entered a program, the screen would eventually have fewer and fewer lines, as it was using that memory for storing the program!

I resisted joining this geezerfest for a while, but now the thread has several thanks (the supposed topic).

I was a poor college student when these first kits came out. When I graduated and got a job, my employer bought a fleet of 8k Commodore PETs to experiment with. I took one home for "learning" and that is what I consider to be my first computer, even though I didn't buy it.

 

We actually used those PETs to interface to laboratory instruments.
