The first computer I received for Christmas was a TI-99/4A. I got it the year they went bust and the computers were cheap. It was a good little computer. Programmed in many of the programs from a computer magazine since you couldn't really find games for it anymore.

Comment on [ Retro GIF of the Week ] The Feminine Eye by matt sarconi

Hi, Just stumbled upon a “retro graphic of the week” illustration of a human eye up close. The captions mentions the AH signature and guesses that is the artist. Her name is Avril Harrison, and for a few years there in the mid to lat 1980’s, she was the queen of game art. Her “Waif”, “King Tut” and other digital drawings put EA’s Deluxe Paint on the map, and showcased the potential of digital art. She was celebrated from afar back in her home town in Scotland, and she deserves due credit for her pioneering artwork.

Heh. My pa wanted me to learn and use a computer with a Texas Instrument (TI) 99/4A back in 1983 or so in PA. I was scared of it. Haha. Although, I liked it after I found it could have games like my Atari 2600. :P

I am very lucky to still have my father, although his mind is going. :( He always supported getting myself and my brother involved in computers. Our first was an Atari 2600 that we still have, then was a TI/994a that we still have that I recall programming on when I was in 3rd grade (approx 1981/82). Then came a stuff Commodore 64 setup including monitor, disk drive, and printer in 1984 that we still have, and then in 1988 our first pc--and IBM PS/2 30-286 which opened us to the world of IBMs and compatibles. We built our first custom system in the early 1990s and then another monster machine in 93/94. We still have all of the machines, although half are in the state of needing restoration in some form or another. His investment in our computing skills has paid dividends as we were able to fix his business point of sale systems without $800 technicians and I was able to build an entire electronic document management system as well as corporate wan using leftover scrap parts for pennies on the dollar. Someday when he will pass, I will need to mention this in his eulogy. I also need to spend more quality time while he is here.

Technically a computer (since it's in the name!), I received an Atari 2600 VCS during Christmas of 1980. Also received Maze Craze and I think one other game. I still have the 2600 and most of my cartridges, as well as several different joysticks/peripherals. Hooked it up a few years ago to the big screen, and it still worked!
