"I started programming on a TRS-80 my family bought from Radio Shack. It didn't have a monitor; instead, you plugged it into a TV. The only way to save programs you had written was by saving them to an audio cassette. It was lots of fun!"
Sounds exactly like it was on my TI. No disk drive, no color monitor (only a black and white TV). Best coding time of my life.
