My first machine was a 286 with 640k RAM and a 360kb floppy drive, no hard disk. I had to boot with the command.com disk, and then pop in the disk of whichever program I wanted to run.
Hell that was a beast of a machine for the time
It was on that machine that I learned that formatting your floppy
disks did bad things to the games on them... hey what can I say.. I used to run anything with an .exe or .com extension.. I still do
Of course I used punch cards, didn't everybody. You don't know what you are missing until you have punched a program 500 cards long (don't have some numbering on the cards) and you drop them.
Now that is a excedrin headache number 1. :cry:
My first computer was an Apple II Plus with a language card (nother more than a 16 K card to load the compiler into). Best at the time. Had a wopping 64 K machine at that point. Still have it packaged up in my attic. Can't get rid of the first one.
