My father always insisted in get into something like computers, since he always wished he knew more about it. He sorta overdid it though: At one time later on: I had three* omputers in one room, a C-64, an Atari ST 1040 and an IBM PC. It looked like something out of a Star Trek episode.

You didn't like Zork? Ohh I loved those games. Like novels you participated in.
Zork! That's the name I was trying to think of. No, not really. It just wasn't my style back then. And, incidently, my first computer was also a C-64. Got it for Christmas 1983. Those were the days. But I only had the C-64 and my ole Atari 2600, which I later gave to my sisters-in-law after I bought a Colecovision with the Atari 2600 converter. I didn't really get a real computer until 1990 or 1991, when I bought a used Amiga 2000. Too bad they're not around anymore, although I understand there still is some support for the computer. It wasn't until 1997 when my uncle gave me a Compaq computer that I entered into the realm of the PC.

Yes, there is still support for the Amiga somewhat (more than the genuises at Commodore actually supplied when the system first came out; don't get me started! ) It was a great system ahead of its time, but Commodore just fumbled the ball when it came to marketing and supporting it.

I remember the Atari 2600 and the Colecovision too...classic stuff. Spent many hours playing Pitfall.

Gosh I sound old.
