    I can remember loading the OS on, I think it was an HP main frame, from a perforated tape on a spool. Then loading your program from cards you marked with a lead pensile. It was a programing exercise in Tech School on an old retired main frame. It was way outdated at the time but a fun trip down memory lane. Pun intended.

    My first experience of computers was at university in 1973; Fortran via punch cards. Hated it!

    Then in 1977 I discovered the Z80 based "Nascom 1" at the BBC, been hooked ever since. My first home computer was a Tandy TRS-80, running a DOS from a "small start-up company" according to the instruction booklet, it was called Micro Soft.
