Got my first 800 back in 1983, at the age of 33. First time I took control of the TV. Not much of a gamer but spent my fair share of time with the joystick. Spent most of my nights typing in programs from Antic, Analog and Compute!.
There were a lot of unfinished projects when I put the 130XE away. Now that I don't have to worry about learning new skills for work I can concentrate on doing what interests me.
