Then , 1983 , My Neighbor got one of the first Personal

Black background with bright green characters ,, JEBUS ,, my eyes have
never been the same since ,,
five minutes to boot , was pretty fast back then ,,
I recall dial up on my first PC , took a full minute to flip a page .
ya hit enter , took the Puppy for a Pee Poo Potty ,,,
when ya got back ,,, ya still had time to fill her water Bowl .
'83? Commodore 64!
I learned BASIC on one of those!

I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
