Happy birthday Mark!! My first purchased-by-me computer was a Mac Plus. $1700. I know twentysomethings who didn't know you could pop popcorn on a stove.

My first computer was powered by an 8086 and it pee me off when some sales punk asks me if I use a computer. I tell them yes but it's a coal fired model.

Mine was a PDP 8L. Well, not mine personally - it was our lab's at the Uni. I think my first one was a Sun, near as I can recall, and that was replaced by an SGI indy, but until then all my computers were in the labs, nothing at home, although I was at the original Apple II launch in London and later in Zurich - but I had no need for one, not when I had something more massively powered at work and I had a Teletype at home to communicate with it if I needed to. We thought back then that 300 BAUD was so fast you would never need more to do anything. HAH!

And Happy Birthday, Mark old man!

Don't feel bad, my first computer was a Tandy Model 1 with 4K (yes K) of RAM. BTW, I still have both of my slide rules from high school and college. Oh, and in the early 70s took a semester of FORTRAN 2 and FORTRAN 4 and got credit for a year of a foreign language. Those were the days.

Real computers are base 2, not base 10.

Base 10 computers are carbon-based, base 2 are silicon-based.

Although licking the excess fried chicken grease off a base 10 computer is much more satisfying & safe than doing so off a base 2 computer.

Well, true at the lowest level... However, the IBM 1620 did BCD arithmetic. Of 16 possible states per 4 bits, BCD (Binary Coded Decimal) used 4 bits to represent 0 through 9 decimal. There was no fixed word length. At the heart of the ALU was a BCD adder.

Bompa ~

Thanks for your post. What a relief - sort of - to know I am not the only one who has been afflicted with whatever is "going around."

I find the older I get the less I am inclined to put up with the foolishness that seems to be happening around me. I heard someone say at a local Senior Center ......"People wonder why old people are so crabby - but they will only understand the WHY when they, themselves get OLD." Why didn't anyone warn us ...... especially the part about print on everything we try to read that got smaller overnight ??? Thinking-about
