The third computer I ever owned: an industry icon.
- On a whim, I had picked up a copy of a state wide trade/swap paper (think craigslist, but tactile) and found this listed. The owner lived in town. It was a miracle! Acquired as part of a deal between my mother and I, I agreed to do a certain amount of housework in exchange for this and his companion for me to tinker. This machine is the reason I am a computer technician today.
