old school hacker, bug

One Lunatic's history with computers, copy of a comment.

From geekfeminism.org:

My first encounter with a computer was when I was too young to remember it properly: it was my father's office, with the lights off and that yellow sticker by the lightswitch to remind him to turn it off when not in use. There was a giant cabinet in the room, and it had blinking lights and things that moved. It was his computer, and it scared me.

The next computer was a Compaq Portable with a tape drive and a floppy drive. Collapse )
