I had a Vic-20, but that was 1980 I think. Tape cassette, hooked to
TV... I'm feeling old.
I had a homebrew system built around a Zilog Z80-MCB in the late
seventies. Tape storage (I never did get the head-per-track 1MB drives
from Newman Computer working right), a surplus OCLC terminal, and a
Selectric printer with homebrew electronics. The first computer I
programmed was an IBM 1620 in the mid sixties, though. An odd machine.

Go out and run a mile or so.
