Gateway Drug

I was too poor to afford one but my neighbour had one. I spent many hours typing away at the keyboard playing adventure games. When I got stuck I began reading the code to get the answers which proved more fun than the game itself. I mastered the 'Ram pack Wobble' which on reflection was a good thing. When the machine crashed, you had to re-input everything again. That was good practice and burned the language into your brain. They (thankfully) don't make 'em like that any more.
