    This is the very first computer I ever used. My dad bought it in the early eighties.

      Damn it! You copied me! Yeah, you did copy me!!! Here's an evidence… But that's okay 'cause I've also started on a ZX81 "computer"!

      Eh eh, are we feeling a bit nostalgic?

      I personally don't think so. It's just that I don't forget where I come from, while fully enjoying today's technology. Without my Apple //e, my faith in Apple wouldn't have been that strong. (My ZX81 was fun, that's for sure; but it's a completely different story…)

      Oh, and while I'm at it, thanks for implicitely showing me that Flickr extended its policy re size; I was still uploading photos in 500x375 max. 'till today when I could have switched to 500x500!

      At last i can see one!
      During all my university years (as a student i mean) i heard about ZX81 by so many friends, while my first computer had been a sad 386 bought after my first year as undergraduate...

      Looks like computer science is just another academic field for me while it's some kind of second life (!) for others :o)

      hope it is ok - I've credited your flickr username, and linked to this page.

      Wow this is such an honour, thank you very much!

      I guess my dad never imagined his ZX 81 would end up on Wikipedia :-)
