My First Computer

Photo courtesy of Dan Veeneman Sometime in the late 1970’s I bought my first computer, an ELF II from Netronics. It arrived at the house in a big, padded envelope. Inside the envelope was an empty printed circuit board, and several little plastic bags containing the electronics. I spent a Saturday afternoon with a soldering iron assembling and testing, and then proceeded to try to figure out what I would do with it.
