    Alas, any pic's of me from the 80's have been ritually burned. Even so, the furthest I go back is the 16k ZX Spectrum which I got (more borrowed and never gave back) off a next door neighbout in '85. A year later parents bought a green screen CPC464 off the same neighbour which I had until I left school in '93 and was able to buy my own first computer - Amiga 600 complete with 14.4k modem, colour dot matrix printer, 20mb hard drive and 2mb Ram - oh yeah! I was rocking it lol.

    My profile pic is me sat at a typewriter, before I even had a computer... although looking at it, within the year I'd have had my A500 and stopped seeing my family as I spent every hour hunched in front of the 14" colour TV. I even hid the Lemmings floppy as my Dad liked playing it, which meant I couldn't get on and play Captain Planet.

    Still got the Amiga set up in my man cave now

    I "would" have had simialir photo's but for the fact that I think I had the ZX81 before we got a reliable family camera or at least a camera that's snaps didn't fade massivley (damn you early Kodak instants)...
