I start counting on my fingers and toes... 25 years ago would make the date ~1987. Pheonix came out with their reverse engineered BIOS around 1984 which allowed third parties to build PC compatible systems. I know I was there :)

Of course if you are like me and think that the Cosmac ELF was cool and built your first board using an RCA 1802 then you might be able to claim 30+ years of computer building experience...

ADDENDUM: Almost forgot tearing apart a Big Track to get the TMS1100 processor. That was a 4 bit critter!

P.S. The first hard drive I ever installed was on an Apple II+ circa 1986...
