Hi from a new PC Jr. user

I guess it doesn't strike anyone here as weird that we are all excited to be using a 1984 computer in 2015?

Why? For me, it just seems like a cool, simple and retro machine.

I'm just getting my PC jr. together from a few eBay auctions. I am hoping to use this machine for the following:
- Catching up on some BBS fun, possibly dialup, and or telnet
- Playing some old school DOS games
- Learning to code 8088 assembly
- Also looking to experience this different PC form factor- trying things to see what I like, for use in an educational/hobbiest computer I am designing from scratch.

Very much looking forward to talking to you all, and learning a ton from you guys! :-)
