My Very First Computer!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following photo, being shared by my friend, Charles C. from here, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Atari ST 1040, AKA "The Little Green Desktop"

Atari ST 1040, AKA “The Little Green Desktop”

My Commentary: My very first computer was an Atari ST 1040, which my father purchased for the family around 1988, when I was just eight years old! So, when I saw my friend sharing this picture on his FB wall a little while ago, it instantly put a smile on my face, and brought back so many childhood memories! Little Green Desktop, for the win!

My favorite game was Alternate Reality: The City! My older brother and I spent many, many hours playing it! Meanwhile, my sister and I loved to take turns playing the game, Mouse Trap! 🙂 Ahh, the days!
