I'm 30.

It's a simple story. Parents bought my brother and I an Intellivision, with
just Pong, I don't remember if it was the late 1970s or early 1980s. Then we
graduated to an Atari VCS (it wasn't a real '2600'). At school, I learned Logo
-- pretty sure the hardware was Commodore but I don't remember 100%. That
must've been in fourth or fifth grade; they school had just a couple of
computers on these big wheeled carts, and once a week they'd bring them into
each classroom for a couple of hours. LOL, for other kids the happiest time in
school was lunch or gym or recess or just Friday: for me it computer day. In
sixth grade we got Apple II+ computers in school; my brother (three years
older) got a IIe for his bar mitzvah present. I pretty much took over that
one. Used it all the way through high school and jumped directly to a 386 in

It was completely by accident that I started collecting handhelds a few years ago.
