Memories of my first Computer
The Radio Shack Color Computer, affectionately known as CoCo to its fans and the Rainbow magazine, with its hundreds of pages of BASIC code. I found any excuse to go over to my Uncle's house to work on his Color Computer 1 and then worked all the following summer mowing neighborhood lawns and pulling weeds to earn enough to buy my first Color Computer 2. I would spend upwards of 8 hours a day, as a 10 year old, typing in and debugging the code from the magazine. Then I had to save all that hard work to a cassette tape. I would often walk away with a horrible headache from intently staring at the TV all day from 18 inches or less away. Ah... Good memories.
