I was 7 when that came out, I never got into computers properly until about 4 years later when I got the CPC 464.

I might have got into computers sooner if it weren't for dumb primary school teachers at the time telling kids that programming was for Tefal-headed scientists with foreheads as long as planks, then one day a mate across the road from me convinced me that you don't have to be a spam-head to build applications and games so therefore I was hooked.

Come to think of it I do have a big spam now and have a bit of a monk's cap forming further back.

Back in the 1980s we used to call people with big a forehead spam-head, we used to slap it and chant the word spam. When doing the slap thing we were said to be spamming someone.

Yep. That'd be one of those "... we don't do that, nowadays" things that we do, nowadays..
