What was your first computer experience?

Mine was way way back in the 6th grade. I remember walking into the school library and there it was, at the very back desk, a Commodore 64. That day was one of the coolest in my preteen years. Artillery was my favorite game on that beast of a computer.  Sporting a 1.023 Mhz CPU, hefty 64 bits of ram, and don't even get me started on its 16 colors. Ahhh the good ole days!

I used to use the Sinclair ZX81 my junior school had back in the 1980's.
From there, I went to the Atari 800XL- Atari STFM - Comadore Amiga 600.
Used to spend hours with my dad typing in program listings from computer mags in Atari Basic.
Or playing Bounty Bob - 2049'er...

My first PC was only in 2000

CURRENTLY - teaching myself C# and Unity...

zx spectrum and hours spent typing programs from books and magazines to find out I had soooooo many typos. Loading games from a castes tape and breaking in to them part way through to play with code and work out what things did. Then we got the zx spectrum +3 disk version, That saved a huge amount of time loading game. Dose anyone remember this - poke 23755,255? Was used to hide and show code. I am sure there was others too but that's the only one I really remember. Dizzy was by far the best game.

When I was like 8 and my grandfather tried to teach me basic by having me build a simple dungeon game where you open doors with keys, fight monsters, etc. You had to use exact commands like that were case sensitive or the game  would break or not follow the command. Good ole' days!
