      First computer ZX81

      First PC Pentium 100MHz, 8MB RAM, 860MB HDD and the original Windows 95 that didnt even support FAT32 which was brill when i bought a 6GB HDD, i had to put 3 partitions on it.

      Built my own ever since, this current one was built in January 2009 and its still fast enough for everything i need.

      Ouch!

      I recall having to partition 300MB drives into multiple partitions for a customer with DOS3.30.

      That wasn't as much fun as it was to prepare the drive in the first place. Low Level Formatting was a bit of a chore, especially when you had to input all those error locations.
