I actually loved it, I learnt basic, and could write my own programs. It needed a tape recorder, but just before it died, I upgraded to a 5.5 external disc drive! How cool! And none of this monitor business, everyone has a TV right?

Gosh, I feel old!

I still owned the very first 8080 PC...gosh, it was crap! The time we bought it, it acted crappy, for it's age. the 5 1/4 disc drive can't read properly, keyboard is weird acting, the rest comes.

I've also worked recently with a monitor...that's it. No plug for PC...just a monitor with a keyboard...and a big white flashing dash. Fun...

I've also test driven the very first PCs on the market...amasing for it's age!

I use DOS to do MBR and NTLDR recovery (through the recovery console through the Windows CD that is, hehe--but you have to know the commands to do the copy). Still use it today!!!
