I would have been four in 1960, OP. Still interested in magnets, toads, bicycles and bunnies. I could already read comic books by then, so my fate was sealed. First real was Fortran and BASIC in whatever year Reagan was elected President. I think Windows 1.0 was still about seven years away?

Reading all the replies, I have to say it's nice to have someone my own age to play with.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
