In Part 1, I explained that my daughter Nadiyah and I were going to power up my very first personal computer, a machine that I built from a kit way back in 1983. It hasn’t been turned on since the late eighties, so the object of our little lab session is to answer the question: will it still work after all these years, or will it explode? In this episode, Part 2, we finally plug the little monster in and find out. Wish us luck!
Please forgive the video framing, which chops off about half of my big head!
You were a little premature in looking for the prompt. Remember, computer speeds were a little slower. However, that was an impressively quick boot up. I love that Nadia doesn’t quite get why she can’t just start typing, and you reading the computer prompt as “Hi”.
Accolades all around. Nadia take a bow:)
