Wow, I coulda had a LOAD "*",8

Sandy, my modest little sedan, rolled up her 38,911th mile today.

And 38911 may not mean much to you, but it does to me.

And didja know that $389.11 is precisely enough to purchase the radiator for a 64 RAM?

(I'm estimating the shipping.)

Charles, you are old school!

Of course, I'm old school enough to have had a C64, but I didn't. :-(

Bill Gates used to say that 640k ought to be enough for anyone.

I remember my first experience with computers, in middle school; 2 4K TRS-80's and a 16K TRS, with the outrageous Apple 2c with 32K.

My first computer (of my own) was an Amiga 500 with 2 floppy drives and an extravagent 1MB RAM (no HD, of course).
