After fixing a BASIC error within the cartridge loader of my first PC
Jr. my dad said "you seem to have a knack for these things, maybe you
can be a Mainframe Operator someday". LOL..
My first computer of my very own (not a family PC like the jr) was a
PS-II model.. um.. don't remember. It was big, clunky, and heavy but
could be torn down using a quarter and was nearly indestructible. It
was a used unit from the IBM Employee Retail PC Store that no longer
exists and it was my first machine to run OS/2. I still love that OS.
It's amazing how far things have come since then (as I type on my work
issued T42 thinkpad that I wish was configured to dual boot with
Ubunutu but isn't).
