BBC B - keyboard

This was my first computer. It was in constant use from 1986 until 1994. I learned to program on it.

    And I thought that strictly beige was the order of the day back then.

    That was true of the early PCs, but the micros were a hotbed of funky design. For example:

  • Shutterfever 9y

    I too learnt to program on one of these. Pity it's not possible to upload the smell of it. The new plastic, the packaging, the User Guide. Lovely. Computers just don't smell the same these days. :-(
