Have you ever sat and reminisced about what was popular when you were a kid? Well…. “Then and Now” Thursdays is right up your alley.
Do you remember DOS? That annoying little cursor blinking in the top left hand corner of a minuscule black screen? Oh my, how they’ve changed over the years, huh?
A lot of us spend our lives plucking away at computers day in and day out. And if your day job doesn’t include the glowing screen or hum of a CPU, then possibly at home, after work, you might hop on and check out the vast world wide web.
Heck, maybe you even check out this blog once in a while? **smile**

So, what’s the first computer you ever had?
