First PC I fucked with:
TRS-80 Model II, and later a
TRS-80 Model 100
State-of-the-art Accessories: Acoustic Coupler for 300 bps modem, Tape Drive, and Light Pen :
Technically this stuff wasn't mine; it belonged to my brother. I was warned not to touch any of it, under threat of broken fingers. ...so naturally I messed with it, repeatedly (what can I say, I was like 5 or 6 years old), and invariably I'd fuck something up, but (motivated by pure fear) I'd always somehow manage to figure out how to "fix" it before he came home. And so began a lifetime fascination with troubleshooting
Come to think of it, it's a few decades later, and I'm pretty sure he still doesn't know (nor that I have a Stack acct!) lol
If you remember Tandy/RadioShack's
TRS-series and want some nostalgia, you can apparently emulate the TRS-80 and some of its' lame software here, or trigger more memories at over at trs.80.org.
