The first computer I used was some time-sharing system at my high school. Who can forget the whir of the motor, the smell of machine oil coming off the Teletype Model 33 ASR? The dusty smell of the paper tape chaff? The squeak of the paper tape as you coiled it tightly into a little cylinder?

The next computer I used in college was probably a PDP-8. We had storage tubes that you could draw graphs on. When the screen got full or messy, you'd push a button to blank the screen with a flash.

My favorite computer was the Kaypro 10 running MP/M.
