First post – first computer.
Here is a picture of my first ever computer. All my peers had spectrums and C64s – I was stuck with this; a Toshiba MSX.
Whilst it was a good machine – its not ideal if all you want to do is play games. But saying that – I taught myself BASIC from the supplied reference manual. Even if all I did was make a glorified address book.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic.
–Sir Arthur C. Clarke
