Check it out! It’s my first computer (the Atari 800XL down at the bottom). Well, it wasn’t technically mine so much as my family’s. We had the cassette tape drive and everything. Can you find yours?

  1. Yep. The old Texas Instrument, hooked up to our family television. We had maybe six different cartridges, mostly games. One taught me how to type, and one wisked me away to a scary jungle to “Hunt the Wumpus.”

    Sigh. Them were the days. 🙂

  2. Ha, here’s my VIC-20. Even better, it actually was ‘mine’ as I won it in an art contest. The added memory (8K expansion!), cartridges, and tape drive were family property though.

  3. We had the Atari 400 (flat keyboard and all)–we had a few games (Missile Command!) and the cassette recorder for storage…you know, so we could play “States and Capitals” over and over.

  4. Aww. I actually kind of miss our Apple IIc. It was such a good computer. How many hours did I spend playing “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” on that thing. . .

  5. I’m glad we’re all big nostalgic nerds together! 🙂

    I didn’t own an Apple, Nora, but there was one at our local library that you could use. My sister and I would spend hours in there making signs and banners for our room with Print Shop. I also played “The Oregon Trail” like a fiend. What a great game.

  6. Apple II rocks! Best games ever. I wish there was a way to play them all. I’ve tried emulators. One even loaded programs but had no support for joysticks. Wah. Oh what I would give to play some Rescue Raiders…
