Hello from Massachusetts

Postby brian8599 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 5:44 am

I wanted to just say hello; although I've been on the board for perhaps 3 months now. I’m grateful to those that have helped me towards building a PCjr (or three). My first "real" computer was a IBM PCjr back in 1983. While I began with a TI 99/4a, I really got involved programming with the PCjr and eventually running a popular (regionally anyway) BBS on it complete with a massive 10Mb HDD! I *gave* that PCjr away when I had a 486DX. :(

The PCjr is responsible for my IT career. I shudder to think what might have happened to me had I ended up with the Apple IIc! Eek! So, hello. I’m re-learning the PCjr and given the developments this board has shown me, I have A LOT to learn! Thank you all for keeping such history alive.
