Telling On My Age....

Recommended Posts

Say or post a picture telling on your age or somewhat of your age without telling the exact year you were born (Unless you really want us to know).

I use to own one of these...

Probably that's something like I was typing on in my childhood?

while my mother was giving birth, this hurricane was on it's way to kill exactly 1,833 people, and it was directly on top of us.

I still remember sitting with my parents during night on the sofa, watching the Apollo 11 landing on out b/w TV... omfg, that sofa was so incredible ugly :D

I reviewed the footage from the German TV some time ago, I remember back then I was spellbound, but now? Poor quality, and I'm not talking about the footage itself, but the stupid commentator who obviously had not much of idea what was going on :D

I think I remember the last Gemini, 12, vaguely.  Seeing the reentry simulation graphic.

I definitely remember watching Apollo 11.  Seeing the B&W feed from the Moon, at first upside down. :)

First time ever my Grandparents let me eat in the living room was watching the same thing... My grandfather and I followed it as close as we could from launch to splashdown... He would have loved KSP  :)

This is an example of my 1st computer. Wrote a few programs for the college I was with at the time, teaching others what a microprocessor could do.

There was no TV and the small keyboard was all I had to enter data. It was just a little bit better than what the Lunar Module had on board. 

Hunt the Wumpus anyone?

Yepp, days of my youth :D 

Yea I do, but at that time 1K bytes of RAM ( using eight 1K by 1's ) was expensive, so extending it even more cost some bucks. Even tho core was replaced some time before that, a few companies did sell core for the 6502 machines and made it available but they did not last long. Wow @VoidSquid you and I must have had the same grade school teachers! lol

Yanoo now that I look back at this, the data structure for just the hair style of a Kerbal character would have filled most all of the memory in my old Kim 1! haha!

Wow never heard of a Conic, but wiki'ing shows it was back in the mid 70's as well! It did use that famous General Instruments chip. Fun stuff here!
