A big part of my early life was working on 8-bit and 16-bit computers in the late 70s and 80s, and as I got older I ended up working on more and more plain vanilla x86 type computers. Even though I have to work on newer computers sometimes, I keep history alive with my collection of retro computers, most of which work even today.
