Last night, while trying to go back to sleep, my mind wandered back to the days before Windows ruled the PC world. I began to think about all of the technology that was cutting edge at the time, now forgotten. My first love was the original IBM 5150 PC, purchased by my employer and entrusted to my eager, trembling hands.
With a 4.77 MHz 8088 processor, 64k RAM, 80 character x 24 line green monochrome display
2x 160k 5-1/4 Floppy drives (hard drives were not available) and ROM BASICA
Oh, the hours I spent programming that wonder to do all sorts of amazing things. I still have that set of instructional binders, including the original disks.
So please, share with us your memories of those days long gone.
