Naturally born midgets or do you have some ray or potion in your arsenal to shrink non-midgets to midget size?

While we are on a roll with first computers ... Colorado School of Mines had a special deal with IBM for the first issued IBM dual floppy in 1985. I hung onto this dinosaur adding in hard drives, modems, graphic card and eventually had to retire it to keep up with ever improving software.
Gotta love the zombie green characters ...

Yes, BASIC was pretty cool. One of my programs was a crude flight simulator. I figured out how to view the BASIC code after the program loaded. From there, I was able to alter the code so the simulator airplane would go super sonic and also fly under ground, sort of like a submarine. Heh!

If you can BASIC, you can program anything. It's just a bit different words, but the logic process remains.

8080/8086 and jump tables, man . . .

Pretty well the same era as my first one... Commodore Vic 20. I also got a Sinclair Spectrum while docking in the UK.

I had a cousin in on the ground floor of Commodore. I had no idea what it was when I was a kid. He'd bring in these "keyboards" with all the shit exposed and use tweezers pull the chips out and replace them and let us place like moon lander and shit. I was a dumbass little kid - I had no idea, I just thought he was cool.

We was worth a pretty penny for a while, but held it too long until it crashed. He was a true believer. Still did pretty well for himself, but could have cashed out during the peak.
