I am a Silly Valley Guy.
At 50 years old... I actually grew up in Sunnyvale.. OH WAIT.... I did spend one semester at Sunnyvale High School before it was shut down for being the worst school in the district.
Scores of 17. 19 , 21, and Homestead was in the 90's
Fremont was in the 60's
I have been to B&C when it was a storefront.
I have been to Weird Stuff (moved but still exists)
My first Atari was a 600XL, buddy told me to take it to another store and get credit..
I did have an 800xl once, Omni XL, A Happy all installed under herbage but It all worked..
In 1985 I was one of five folks that had a PC on an aircraft carrier. Wired up into my upper rack (headroom) Mini TV and the like. COOL DEAL the first class boss and I punched in the code from Compute and Antic mags..
Never really played a whole lotta games.. Just the ability to program and go from there made me happy//..
The 520 ST was the pinnacle. I was dealing with star system generation, star types, habitable zone location, asteroid belt location..TRAVELLER TM shit
last time I played Adventure.. I blew out by bladder an died!
