I didn't get my first computer until 2002. I've dealt with them long before that, but I never had my own until then.

Default Kaypro's with Zcpr-3 and Znodes. I was a Znode

I have a couple of Sol's upstairs with the 8" drives.
Got 5 Kaypro 10's out in the shop. One I put a 40MB HDD in. That was in 1987 I think. Ran Zcpr-3 on the Kaypro's. Had 2 BBS's. Ran a BBS for 13 years. From 1985 until 1998. Had 5 phone lines coming into the house for the BBS's etc. $535.00 for a Hayes 2400 baud modem. $800 for a 9600 baud modem. Then the cheap 14.4's came out and the 28.8's then the current 56K's. Then ran cable through here in 1998 I think and so I jumped right on that!

First MS-DOS computer was in 1988, $1,100 for a yellow screen and a 10MB HDD with a 8088 CPU. Now my newest is a Q6600 Quad/4GB RAM/500GB Raid1/30" monitor. LOVE that size of a monitor.

Geeeez, over 25 years of computers sitting around the house here. Dozens of them stacked around the shop and in the attic. Dozens of thousands of dollars buying them over the years too. I guess that is what a hobby is about. Spending money.
