Excerpt of article text...

Hi Dave! Tell us a little about yourself.

I was raised in England until I was nine and then my family moved to Syracuse, New York. It's there that I became interested in computers. My dad was a doctor but very interested in computers and we had a teletype at home when I was very young.

We then had an Intecolor 8001 (http://users.rcn.com/crfriend/museum/machines/ISC8001.html) and Compucolor II (http://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?st=1@c=560) which were all-in-one machines with a color monitor. Kind of like an early iMac. These machines had a built-in BASIC interpreter and I also did quite a lot of stuff in assembly language.

The Intecolor was the larger more powerful one with a built in 19" color screen. We updated it to support high resolution graphics (480x320, 8 colors). It was a very advanced bit of hardware for the time, 1975 or so. I was about ten at the time.

What kinds of things did you program?
