Hi, Friends, I would like to share my experience regarding my first opertunity to work on a pc. It was some time during 1989-91 when I was studying 12th std where I joined computer science group. On those days there was old the old amber green screens with black backgrounds. The only colour I have seen green, then later when I started by college I have seen black and grey screens ( 1991-1994 ), from 1994 onwards those old crt monitors with huge size started coming in the market. Please share your experience.

I like this topic. I have so many fond memories of the first contact I had with computers. It was in the early 80's. Sometimes, my father would take me to his office downtown and while he was working, one of the nice ladies from the office would sit me in front of this huge terminal, which was plugged to a printer, so when you typed, it would show on the screen but also on the printer. I didn't even know how to read or write at the time -- I must've been around 4 or 5 years old -- but I always felt proud when they handled me the piece of paper from the printer, full of "fkgdj98ldfi 09tasjfdjgdfjg"'s. Then when I was about 8 we got our first home PC, it was an Olivetti with a single floppy drive, you had to boot it up with a diskette. The first game I played on it was Lode Runner. Fun times :)
