Olds go nostalgic for the good old days of tech

Trash Eighty with a cassette drive. Swanky.

And that’s what we did for fun with computers in the 80’s, children. We didn’t have no Internet.

I remember playing “Star Trek” on the computer with the daisy-wheel printer w/the modem on which one had to place a telephone receiver to communicate with the other party.

This was 1978 or '79, Computer Science class that I took when I started high school. I dropped it, as at 14, I just wasn’t dedicated enough to care.

If you’d like to try the Star Trek game again, The Classic Super Star Trek Game has the latest version, last updated in 2019(!) Still the same text interface, but no teletype or printer needed now.

Thank you! Also, for the word “teletype”, which escaped me.

But I fibbed - I didn’t personally actually play it - I watched someone else play it. I wasn’t up to handling it then, and I’m probably not now, lol.
