My first computer

Nostalgia time. While reading a few Wikipedia articles, just remembered that my first computer was a Timex 2068, which in fact was a clone of the ZX Spectrum 48k. I got it in 1987 but I was used to play with other computers (friends, school, etc) like the Commodore 64, Atari ST, Phillips MSX, etc. The Timex 2068 had a cartridge system but with limited support. I had a few ones (a word processor and a Spectrum 48k emulator cartridge to load games using the cassette player). My first language was of course, BASIC. Those were the days. I remember the exact day when I have used a computer. I was a kid in 1984 and at the time I was living in Brazil. I went to an exhibition where there was a TK 82C (a brazilian clone of the ZX81) connected to a big and ugly green monitor playing the Game of Life (very popular at that time as a demo BASIC program). I immediatly fell in love with computers.
