A recent game on Twitter is to describe one's original programming environment.
It brought back memories of the mighty Texas Instruments 99/4a (see it here): our family's first computer.
To be honest, I don't remember if I hammered in any programs into it. I know I did on the Commodore 64 (a screaming beast in its own right).
We did play games though. A favourite was Parsec, and sure enough, YouTube comes to the rescue here. Below is a video of gameplay!
(Note that the video features the voice synthesizer, which we didn't have. I bet the beeping sounds, though, are all too familiar to my parents.)
