I have no idea. I guess they interested me but I'm not really sure what got me started. Afterall, my first computer was a Tandy laptop.

Well for me, i'd have to say that my 1st comp. was a Commadore 64. I loved that system to play games.

My favorite of all time on it was Wizball. This was a game ahead of it's time. (very addicting game)

Anyway's I wrote my 1st prog. on it and made a security file on the diskette. if anyone tryied to use it
with out putting in the password, it went off

sounding bells & alarms & flashed the screen with :
THIS DISK IS STOLEN !!

moving on from that, I could'nt afford a comp. but my girlfriend recieved a laptop from her boss.

She (my girl) would let me play my games on her laptop. I self taught myself around the way's of windows, and before i knew it i was hooked.

I am still learning new things about them, and will allway's be fasinated by them....

I got into computers when I was a baby! yes! I was able to use one at 1.5 yrs old!

built my first when I was liek 5 or so he he...

I also used unix as my first OS!

my school that I went to later on only had UNIX or macs before, now all they use is windows 2000 I think. pretty odd change huh?

ive prolly used tons of unix variants and I was like teh child prodigy oiver at my school he he. of course I got in trouble for haking and stuff but hey it was fun!
