Joseph Maurer

TRS80 Winter of 1977 . No hard drive, no floppy, no sound. Keyboard was built into the system. I loaded it with a cassett recorder and wrote programs in Basic.

My first program was: What is your name?
Blank rectangle box would appear and flash.
I typed in Joe and hit the enter key.
The thing replied with “Hi Joe”.
I was amazed and hooked on computing. Loved that thing and spent many restfull hours on the thing.
