The first computer I learned on was an AppleII. Our first home computer was
TI99/4A. The first one I fell in love with was the MacSE. It's over 10
years old, and I still have it in working order. I never fully recovered,
and despite the fact that I am a productive member of computing society (who
should definitely know better), I still harbor a desire for my computer to
exist in no larger than a 2' cube. Including monitor.

Young sons with computers are the source (larval) of new gurus, I thought.
