my first love


powerbook detail
Originally uploaded by rockmother.
Here is a menu detail from my lovely 11 year old powerbook that I found in my loft yesterday. It powered up with no problem apart from the fact that it has a piece of sellotape holding the battery in place. It only has 12 fonts and 8MB of memory. It cost a fortune in 1994. My how times have changed. I love it. I miss my old Mac Classic which was stolen when my office was burgled - the loss adjuster replaced it with this.

Ah, the joy of our old loves! I had an early Powerbook with a ball rather than a finger-pad thing.
Better than that, my first ever Mac was an SE30 in Goldsmiths' Computer Centre in 1988. It was the only Mac they had, but linked to a Laserprinter it changed my life. 10" b/w screen and all. I think it had 1 meg of ram, if that. Later I worked at the computer centre and upgraded it to 4Mb and a 40Mb hard drive and also added an ethernet card to it.
Later even than that when I was a proper employee I found it lurking in a cupboard, abandoned and unloved. I stole it. I still have it and will take a picture of it on monday and post it. I lent it to my sister who used it for years in France and then returned it.

And they called it puppy love
Oh i guess they'll never know
how a young heart really feels
and just why i love her so
and they called it puppy love
just because we're in our teens
tell them all
please tell them it isn't fair
to take away my only dream
i cry each night
my tears for you
my tears are all in vain
i hope and i pray
that maybe someday
you'll be back (you'll be back) in my arms(in my arms)
once again

I too remember although un-fondly my introduction at college to computers. We were given a thick hand-out which was basically code gobbledygook about how to crank up a bbc basic word processor. It took me about half an hour to work out how to get the thing started - all I can remember is a strange bearded tutor who smelled of pipe tobacco telling me to key in xc51*^ prompt etc to get it started. The only other thing I can remember is getting bored watching the dot matrix letters appear so slowly. How happy was I to go to PCL and meet Steve Bowbrick. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't know anything about computers and love Mac's so much. Oh, and I also wouldn't have such bad liver function but hey ho, the Crown and Sceptre was fun until I think we got banned?!
