640K ought to be enough for anybody

An ode to old-school computing, found via Fark.com: Hey, Hey, 16K

Oh, how I remember the old VIC-20, TI-99/4A, and of course the TRS-80 CoCo I used so much as a kid… Yeah, I know, I know, I was a geeky child. 😉

  1. My first computer was a Tandy 1000EX. Pretty upscale for 1985, it was IBM-compatible! Although it didn’t have standard ISA slots (it used a 62-pin header instead of a 62-pin card edge socket). I spent many hours trying to figure out some (cheap) way to rig an adaptor to plug ISA cards into it.

  2. All I know about my first computer is that it had a 12 MHz processor and 20 MB of storage space. Enable 2.15 was our “word processor” of choice.

    I could do more with my TI-85. And I did, too.
