I had a chance to buy a used pdp-8e from the physics department for "cheap". I guess it was still a little too big for my tastes and the Apple II came out about that time. ;)

Multi-user space wars (written by a friend) on a text terminal on a HP realtime mini with 4 other players was, well, better than anything in gaming that has happenned since. -Kurt On 8/3/12 5:37 AM, "Postmaster" <postmas...@gatworks.com> wrote: > WHAT! - no pdp-8 :) > > On 08/03/12 06:52, Kurt Bigler wrote: >> * After the UNIVAC 1108, the IBM 360, the PDP-11, and the Apple II, the Mac >> was my next computer > > > > > !DSPAM:50208d2034211484845289!
