I remember 8" and 16" discs, and also I remember a "computer" with a screen with the same screen layout as an A4, and the word-processing program in the BIOS..

Side note; I also remember writing ROMs by using ten switches. (one resetted the memory address-count, 8 contained the data you wanted to write, the last one wrote the data to the memory at the current address, and increased the address by one. (By using this I made a "intersection traffic light controller program" for two intersections which were in sequence (and buttons for crossings, and sensors for cars) as a project, which I later showed my teacher.. I kinda wish that I had built a "model" of the intersection and put the leds and sensors in.. but I was satisfied with just getting my light-scheme functioning okay and my project approved)

That's nothing. I got a little magnet and had to set the programcode for an os bit by bit on floppy disks by myself.

That's nothing. We pirated c64 games using loudspeaker and microphone before we got dual casette players.
