I think that's when the world divided in two (again!) -- those people who
were satisfied to be told they had killed something as with text-based games
and those who needed to see it blow up. I rocked at Meteors! Bam! Sizzle!
Bing! Somewhere around here I have a photo of my cat lying across the
keyboard of my RS TRS-80 -- all I needed were the arrow keys ... and
something else to shoot with ... can't remember what and besides the key
labels wore off after a month or so.

My first computer: a Radio Shack TRS-80 Mod I (4k of memory). It had a
cassette drive initially, but dad upgraded to a floppy drive when it became
available. He also bought an expansion interface for it, which was
approximately the size of a VCR and added a whopping 4k of additional
memory. I think my analog watch has more memory than that computer did.
I'll always have a fond memory of Adventure on the TRS-80, though. I somehow
think my love of language comes from fighting to express commands in two
words or less.
You see a fierce green dragon.

Congratulations. You have just killed a dragon with your bare hands.
