Default Re: Your first computer

Way back in the day, my parents picked me up from school and took me over to this custom computer place to surprise me with a new computer. Man, that was exciting.

Anyway, it had Windows 3.1 and a 75MHz Pentium. Less than 1GB hard drive, I believe, and probably 8 or 16 MB RAM. I remember tinkering with it a lot. My first forays into porn were on that comp, and my mom saw me on Playboy.com one day. I was like thirteen or fourteen. Man, that was embarrassing.

We had it for many years, though. It's life finally ended when I formatted it to fix some problem, and I didn't know what to do after that. Oops. Oh, then I fried the CPU by running it without the fan. Oops again. Haha. I've definitely learned a lot since then.

It served me well, though. Oh yeah, it came with Doom and Doom 2 and Wheel of Fortune! Oh man, it was great.

Doom and Doom 2 were the greatest games for old computers EVER.

hehehe theyre some GOLDEN OLDIES for sure!

i have our old computer that ive sorta claimed for myself down in my room. its running an AMD Duron 800Mhz CPU with 128MB RAM, a 16MB vid card, and no HDD (im looking for one asap so i can throw Win98 on it to play the old games that XP wont play!!!) its got onboard sound a 40(write)x32(rewrite)x48(read) CD RW and a stuffed 36x CDROM in it along with a 3.5" floppy drive.

The first computer that the family had was secnd hand from friends when they upgraded. we got a 486/DX CPU, 8MB RAM, dont know what the vid card was, onboard sound, and a 513MB HDD!!!! WOOO!!!! it was a BEAST!

now i want a TOP LINE system and the broken one with a HDD. so i can play my old games and change a few chords and play new games! EASY!

Comadore 64! with a tape drive yet. It would take a half hour to load a text based game. And you had to load the game everytime you turned off the PC.
