Happy Birthday C64

Dec 10, 2007 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

For the record, I have never had a Commodore 64, but I can’t deny the impact this pc had on the teche generation. I grew up in a Radio Shack environment so I always had a TRS-80 computer in one version or another for most of my childhood. From a Color Computer to a Model 3/4 to some of the first PC based laptops Tandy put out.

I took several computer classes while in school learning basic programing well before I finished high school. In fact, I wrote a mailing label program for my parents business in basic. For the most part that program was easy except for the what seemed like a million read/data lines of code to get the UPS zones correct for the shipping to places we didn’t ship to a lot.

Having those computers in front of me since I was about 8 years old for sure made a big impact in my career despite the fact I tried to run away from it while in college. I started college wanting to be a pharmacist and ended up with a journalism degree. After working for the paper in Richmond, I seen how computers were my future. I just couldn’t stay away and was always drawn to supporting them.

So, Happy Birthday Commodore 64.
