Back in the 70's I got this educational thingy called "CARDIAC". Was a cardboard tool to demonstrate the workings of a computer. Had sections for memory and registers, and you would write in with pencil your program, and execute the instructions, etc. Very simple, but showed me enough to get me hooked.

High school we had access to an old HP computer. Had a 80 character, single line LED display, card reader, plotter, thermal printer, and 4K of core RAM. Lots of fun doing plots and such. Also the school had an 1802 kit that I would do assembler coding on.

First real computer was a TRS-80, and first computer job was during the summer when I was 15, writing some office software on a UCSD Pascal system. And I haven't stopped since 😉
