@Dracula, I started in that time with an Atari too, I wrote in Atari BASIC and later in Pascal. But I can still build computers and install the OS with all drivers. I'm even working in ICT now and build installers and virtualise software...

Spare a thought for the poor fecker who has to back up the NSA's 150 Exabytes of tentacle porn, cats and emails about vaginal fungal infestations.

82: I think I had an Atari and an Apple II. I programmed Applesoft Basic, BBC Basic and Logo. Wrote my own dot-matrix printer drivers. I was 10.

Today I've just picked up a new PC: Haswell iCore7 4770K 8 core 3.6GHZ, ASUS 787 Pro, 16GB, Hyper-X 120GB, RAID5 3x2TB Win 7 Pro 64 bit. I can't even install the hardware and O/S myself.

The early tandy's were good cause if you owned one chances are you built it. When I say built it I mean built it from a blank motherboard.

Wow! Okay, I stand corrected! I was still using tree directories and root language in the early 90s in places that were alternatives to startups like AOL, etc., but I was a bit too young (not by much, mind you) in '82, and I guess I wasn't aware. Thanks for the info!

I grew up very close to there! Had a 457 phone number and 43220 zip code.

I don't remember ever seeing Al Gore around though...

Or you can do it on your phone and get out of the house now and then. Addict.

Damn, that brings back memories! I ran up such a bill (it was $6/hr. when I found it) that I think I still owe them a few bucks...

@SmagBoy1
1982 is probably right. CompuServe was acquired by H&R Block in 1980, and started its CompuServe Network Services in 1982. By '92 it was starting to decline.

'82 was the year I graduated high school. Don't remember ads looking this retro but it WAS pre-Mac, pre-Windows so the year's probably right. Compuserve was my first internet service. For a long time, I thought all the chat rooms within the Compuserve sphere was all there was on the internet. One day, I broke through the wall and all of a sudden I was in the internet wilderness!! So different in the early days vs. now.

I don't think that was 1982. 1992 maybe? Still, pretty cool stuff to see!

Love these old ads

and was forever browsing the PC magazines
looking at these wild futuristic things
Brings back fond memories of waiting 45 minutes for 'The Hobbit' to load by tape

Only $5 an hour? What a deal. That's only $3720 a month. Where do I sign up?

Those were the days.
I used to work on a Radio Shack TANDY computer.
You knew it was good 'cause The Hulk endorsed it
