The earliest computer (other than the classic Commadore 64) I really worked
on was a Tandy 1000SL. One of those old Radio Shack computers. No windows,
but it had a BAAAAD program that tried to imitate the first versions of
Windows through the DOS interface. From that I upgraded to a 486/33. One of
Gateway's workhorses. What was with those "turbo" buttons!? Yeah...I made it
a practice to push that button to slow down my machine....uh no.
