My first computer was an Apple Macintosh Quadra 605. I still remember the day I got that computer.
It was the late summer of '93 before my fourth grade year, I saw my parents get out the car carrying the box and walking towards the house and my first thought was my dad was going to upgrade his word processor . So as he walked towards the front door and I said, "Cool Dad you bought a computer. Are you going to use that instead of the word processor?" After I asked, he stopped where he was and and he looked at my mom and then back at me shook his head and said, "This isn't a computer for me son, this is yours." I remember standing there completely shocked and started crying. My mom hugged me asking what was wrong and I told her how happy I was and this completely surprised me.
I later found out that my grandmother had purchased the computer for me and it was to help me in school. Besides using the computer to help in school, I played games on there, of course, and it was the first machine I started programming on. I programmed in BASIC and my favorite project I made was a simple text based, random encounter RPG. It had no story it was just a screen with a character's name, hp, mp, experience, and options of moving in four directions. I remember the days I would play and constantly tweak stuff in the game. Man that was a great time in my life.
