I remember using the green/black macs in 3rd grade. My family eventually got a 25mhz hp home computer years later, I believe it ran windows 3.1. I now work at Intel Corp, crazy to see how things have progressed.

I learned on DOS and OS/2. I remember how cool it was to go over to my grandma's house because she had a Windows 98 PC with a 3D graphics chip!

It was the **** when she bought it, but it was a pain in the *** 10 years later when I had to try to fix the 10-year-old gateway still running Windows 98 in 2009.

But I could play Soldier of Fortune on it back in the day, and that's all that mattered.

Yep, that's it! And the giant 150lb top feed player, too! We had a bunch of military training videos that we recorded onto betamax cassettes off of one of those machines. Aircraft carrier mishaps was a particularly interesting topic. So was the "Wild Weasel" Vietnam era anti-surface-to-air missile program documentary.



EDIT: I found the "Wild Weasels" documentary. Low quality, but very interesting if you can get past the banjo music in the introduction. These are some of the bravest and most professional men of their generation. The stories of developing and implementing electronics on the fly with men's lives at stake are amazing.

These men would fly over the missile sites and get them to shoot at them so that they could find and try to kill the sites. They were the bait so that the other planes' crews might survive. Their mission was considered almost suicidal.


One of the gentlemen interviewed had a teenage daughter that used to babysit me as a child.

And iirc, the music is by one of the former weasels.


EDIT EDIT:
Hey, is that Joe Perez in a Hawaiian shirt at 29:00?
