QuickBasic (actually QBasic, and then later QuickBasic when my mom
shelled out the money for me to buy it) was my first language. I
remember being completely flabbergasted when I found out they packaged
an interpreter with DOS, and it had been under my nose the whole time.
I think my first "finished" program was a D&D character generator.
Basically, just colored and formatted text with the output of 6 or so
random number generations.

Meeeeeemoriiiieeeeees... :D
