    When I first went to Uni at 17. Before that I would use the living room family computer for porn. Never got caught cause I'm a ninja. Although technically, I've never owned my own computer I've only owned my own laptop

    I got my first computer in 1987 at the age of 23...an 80186-based Tandy 2000. It wasn't compatible with the IBM PCs on the hardware level, so I had to figure out how to create my own programs, which was a lot of fun. It had 256K RAM (expandable to 768 K), a 10 MB hard drive and a 720K 5.25" floppy drive.
