What was your first experience with a computer? and What made you want to start programming?

My first experience was when I was a kid and the next door neighbor has an Apple II E, before the days of internet. The first game I ever played on an actual computer was "Soft porn adventure" which later morphed into Leisure suit Larry. Then the arcade games took over. About 15 I bout a new system that had just hit the market, the TI-99 4/A... Scott Adams text adventures were awesome... I wrote a few of them in basic when I was on my commodore 64. These games used the best processor ever, the human mind. They ran off imagination. They made people think, and I fell in love with them. A love I still have to this day...

Okay folks... Your turn.

Yes, but back in the day, they were bad ass for what they were. I  never owned a z81  looked like a calculator to me. But I remember them well.
