When I was a wee lad my father brought home a computer one day. It was much sleeker than almost everything out there and the claims on the side of the box were almost too good to be true. 4096 colors! A sound processor! A mouse!
I spent many happy hours playing games, writing papers, and constructing my first attempts at code on that machine. It was far ahead of its time and is still regarded with a certain wistfulness in our family. To give you a sense of how far along 1985 was, though, you can now fully emulate an Amiga in your browser.
