Back When Floppy Disks Were Still Floppy.

Yep. I am an old school computer geek. Started on my Aunt's Commodore 64, and my first computer of my very own was an Apple II GS. Then I switched to the dark side for awhile and taught myself MS DOS 6. I have been tinkering with PCs ever since. I learned how to fix and build PCs in 2003 and got into Linux and then BSD around the same time. I have since gotten back into the CLI on Linux and BSD machines and a few years ago I went back to the Apple platform although now I use low end gently used 2nd hand Macs. I am typing this on a 2003 Power Mac G5 and my main laptop is a 2001 Titanium G4 Powerbook.


Jpdate:


My Powerbook finally gave up the ghost but I have replaced it with at lat 2006 Macbook.  My first MacIntel.

We've still got our Commodore 64 the game we used to play on it is coming back into fashion in a updated version

Cool. Just proves they don't make them like they used to. An Ipad may have more processing power but in 10 years it will probably be a paperweight.

Our Commodore 64 was sold by a company called TIME. and came as a complete package of at least 8 different bits. TIME has since gone belly up (bust) they had a very bad reputation on servicing

For ours we paid £1,100.00p with nothing to pay for 12 months and the game that came with it was a cartridge and called TERMINATOR 2 a modern version is I believe available on disc

Bought it for our sons 10th birthday he's 27 today and it still works when we use it (the Commodore 64 and the game too)
