I remember when I got my first computer. It was a Tandy 25MHz. A couple of my computer geek nephews came over and they couldn't believe how blazingly fast my computer was.

You show off!! ;-)

How about me? http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/about/toys.html :P

Well, now that we have covered the electron computing devices, lets look at an older version of the Home Computer.

See attachment.

You used that? :P

I fiddled around with it until TI came out with a digital slide rule.
TI allowed us to design and build a class lab project of a 9 transistor AM radio.

I "fiddled" around with Abacus' as well, literally "fiddled", never knew the proper method of using them!

Real Slide Rulers, sure, everybody used them, didn't they?? ;-)

Four Figure Log tables, heaps of use!!

First "electronic" Calculator I saw was in the first year of my Electronics Apprenticeship (1973) when one of the other guys brought one that could add/subtract/divide/multiply and had *one* memory!! Cost him $75, which was about a week and a half's pay!!
