The monitor's a little warped, but the 1200 baud modem screams! AND it came with a free cell phone!
04/07/2005 04:11:52 AM · #62
Yup -- looks like about $10,000 worth of stuff. I have a 300 baud modem if that 1200 proves as unstable as most of them were.

I can remember my first computer. 33MHz / Win 3.1 / 220mb HD / 4 mb ram / 3.5" drive / NO CD-Rom, I had to purchase that and put in myself and I think it was a 2X. / 9600 bps modem...... And it cost as much if not more than the computer I have now.

That's right, a CDC Cyber 170 running PLATO, circa 1980... Everyone with their C64s and I was running a touchscreen terminal linked to the system that spawned most of the community features of today's internet:
- instant messaging
- threaded message boards (like this one!)
- email
- lotus notes (crap that it is, directly decended from PLATO Notes)
- multiplayer games
- the first ever 3d 1st-person shooter
- open-source development

Got a fully-functional Mac Plus (1MB) that I sometimes boot to play Putt-Putt. :)

3.5MHz Z80, 8K ROM and 1K RAM, though mine was tricked out with the 16K RAM upgrade.


My first also. I had the 16k expansion and thermal printer. I think I still have some issues of Sinclair magazine. I still have my computer also, but it doen't work anymore. I have thought about building one from NOS kits online.
