When and where did you work on the computer for the fist time, what were your feelings? Did you feel as if you have become somewhat special?

I was still grade six when I first use computer. That was 11 years ago. I used Word for my school requirements. I feel so excited on it. But it made me feel I'm out of the trend. So that day, I told myself that I have to keep studying on computers and learn how to use it.

I first worked on a computer about 30 years ago. I was working for my parents, and they bought a computer to handle the billing. The computer had a CP/M operating system (this was a little before Microsoft's DOS and later Windows became the dominant operating system for business computers). The computer had no hard drive, but ran off a floppy disc drive. The billing program used Ashton Tate's DBASE database program which includes programming capabilities. The computer did make me feel that I suddenly had greater power. Before we got the computer, all the bills were typed out on a typewriter. The dot-matrix printer zipped through the bills in no time.
