I'm glad I had this image file archived away on a CD. I remember the day when it arrived, my very own personal computer! I was really excited at the prospect of having my very own computer at home when the techie dude was installing it!..to think it was 10 years ago is probably long enough to be in todays school history books. 'Back in the days' hardly anyone had a computer, the only people I knew who had one was my eldest cousin and a friend at school. Anyway it was windows '95 which was somewhat state of the art back then with its amazing new GUI. I got encarta 96 within the package which I thought was mind blowing.. a whole enyclopedia at your fingertips! I used to score really well in all my courseworks; obvioulsy now I know the meaning of plagarism....oops
I got it as a birthday present when I was 11. I remember how everyone was having a go at opening up Word or something and being stunned each time without fail.
The first thing I did was create this image. I remember it took me around 4 hours to do using microsoft paint. I'm glad I had this image file archived away on a CD as now it is archived on the internet for the first time (and in its true resolution); 10 years after being created.
Well I suppose archving things on CDs is a nice way of recording history and to remind you of past times. I can't remember why I put the cactus there, I suppose if you go off the path you will only be confronted with spiritual pain.
For those of you interested, the specification of the system as i remember was:
Intel Pentium 2, 333mhz processor
4mb graphics card
15' Crt monitor
Oh that reminds me of how long it took to load!
