My First Computer

In my school reading today, I came across the topic of the failure of the IBM PC Jr. My family once had one of these. It was not our first computer, however. That had been the Tandy/Radio Shack TRS-80 Color Computer, with 16K RAM and Extended Color BASIC. I believe I was around 9 years old at that time. On that computer, I learned to code. At that time, BASIC used line numbers and was a different language from that we now know.
