The first computer i had access to was my brother’s. This 48 kb british beauty from the eighties changed my life. Its name ‘ ZX Spectrum Sinclair ‘ (amazing).
Many of us ‘plugged in’ to the world of video games and managed to teach us to be patient (hours loading their game cassettes in memory). Writing first codes ‘little intermittent color screen’ and things like that. You could take 10 minutes to program something nice in Basic and up to 2 hours to load a game -> not loaded correctly -> try it again and again…Endless hours chatting with the suffering friend or family member who shared with you those expectant moments. True magic.
✿ Note: keyboard keys look like Apple iMac keyboard :O.
