The Commodore Years.
In 1982, after months of visiting shops that sold computers, I bought my first VIC-20. I quickly realised that its limited memory and small screen would not do what I wanted and bought a Commodore 64.
This was the start of a hobby that would span fifteen years and make the computer part of my daily life. During this time I learned to write my own software and to adapt other people's to my needs.
Over the years I have collected a range of 8-bit Commodore computers and peripherals to go with them. Had I joined the computer revolution earlier, I would have bought a PET. I now have two.
My collection includes PETs, the VIC-20, the first colour home computer, the 64 in both of its forms, the SX-64, claimed to be the world's first portable colour computer, 128s and the ill-fated C16 and Plus/4.
This is by no means a definitive collection, but it provides a view of those early days of the computer revolution. Nor does it include the Amiga as I went straight from the 8-bit Commodores to a PC.
But the 1980s was the time when men in white lab coats were replaced by people working in their own homes. The mysterious world of computing was a mystery no more. These really were 'computers for the masses'.
