When was the first time you used a computer? My father bought computer when I was 5 years old, and I liked it very much, at that time there was Windows 3.1 version, and it very simple version, I used to play Pacman game and chess and others. When was your first time? Did you know how to use it? What games you were addicted to it at that time?

I used my first computer when i was about 5 years, i played games, like pacman and pinpong and it was quite fun for me then, you know the old pacman. And the pinpong was maybe the most funniest thing. Sometimes if ive been nice i could maybe play for 30 minutes, then i was in heaven, you should have seen my smile. The computer went really slow, but at that time quite fast. I still play pacman, i think everybody got good memories from it.

I couldn't remember when I first used a computer. It was in primary school, perhaps when I was 10 years old. There was a computer class every week. I still remember each week is for different purpose in a month, Maths, English, Chinese and Malay language. They were some educational programs for us to play around. For my own computer, I think I had a second-hand computer when I was 15, perhaps. It was still green screen. I didn't play much game, as I was busy with my studies.

The first time I used a computer is when I was 14 years old. At that time, it was Windows 95 and I used it to play games instead of using it on homework. My father bought it at a high price and I did not know how to use it. As for games, I played racing games and pacman too. After few years later, the computer went spoilt and I realize that computers are not built to last long so the next time I bought a computer will not be too expensive.

Scapula, My first experience with the computer was when I was 6 years of age. Things just came naturally for me back then and basically taught myself the ins and outs of the computer quite quickly. In fact, back then there was a "Computer Tech" that knew less than I did and used to come to me when something wasn't working right, what is really funny is he worked for a community college to keep their brand new computer systems operational, and since my grandmother worked at that college I had the run of the whole community college I was allowed to go anywhere on that college that I wanted to so I usuallys stayed in their computer lab working with the "Computer Tech" to fix problems that arose, as far as games though I wasn't really interested in the games, I came interested in those much later in years, I was more interested in learning why a computer worked or didn't work and how to fix the problems when they didn't work.

I think that was when I was still in high school that I get to use a computer for the first time. It was also the time when I got decided to take up a computer course instead of an engineering course. I was intrigue of how it works. How they made games. It was as comodore computer, the cpu and keyboard was one we had to connect it to the TV then we played jump man, pacman, centipede. It used floppy disk and If I am not wrong the programs were made thru basic programming.

It was around at the age of 11 when i was studying 6th standard. At that computers are like aliens to us. But now it's part of my family. At first time i didn't know how to use but later my teacher taught me how to operate it. I used to play chess, pacman, dave, prince, skyroad, othello and so on.

First computer i used ran Windows 95, man it sucked. I remember playing a snooker game with no other balls but just the white ball and you had to pot the white ball by typing in degrees so the white ball would go at a certain angle to post it.
