The hard drive was 5GB, to which I extravagantly added a massive 20 gigger. I keep it plugged-in, as my wife keeps saying she may use it someday to make greeting cards, but she never gets a round to it. I really ought to donate to a senior center.

Windows '95 was my introduction into the Windows world. Before that I was only ever interested in computers for playing games on. The first computer I got was a Commodore VIC20, then a Plus 4 and the c64. ZX Spectrum +2 and virtually every games console that was released up until the PS2.

There is one phrase that makes me cringe whenever I think of the Windows '95 era.... "Dial-up connection"
It used to take me a day to download one song and was forever disconnecting. IE reminds me of that a lot, probably why I never touch it anymore!
