    Think I was 12 or 13 when the video game was out. Back in the day you actually went into the video game place and stood at the machine.

    I saw that in theaters as a high school student.....at the time, personal computers were still THOUSANDS of dollars, and there was NO internet (at least not in the private sector).

    TRON captured my imagination and convinced me that computers were cool.....from that moment on, all I wanted to do was learn how to write code and be a computer nerd. :D

    Killer movie.
    I remember our school in Seattle was the first jr. high in the state with a computer lab, and, at the time, was outfitted with the best PC money could buy.............the Commodore 64:laugh:

    Oh, yeah. My friend in the USAF, had a Commodore 64, you could actually land a outline of a 747 on it. Was exciting back then. I'd forgotten about that.
