Age of 7
Spent most afternoons at my father's office. Naturally was interested in these big machines and played with them, or they played with me. Studied the alphabet from keyboards.
[ My first computer - CM2M (HP-2000 platform) the main unit and the user's terminal ]
[ One of my first digital works "Username" - ASCII print on a dot-matrix printer ]
Age of 10-11
[ My second computer - DVK2 (PDP-11 platform) ]
Still in the same office while studying the BASIC language I wrote an elementary random generative texts program - a game that simply integrates words from user's input into randomly chosen pre-defined sentences. And vice-versa.
Wrote also my own graphics editor because had no access to any. It was able to register and draw a sequence of vector instructions: draw a line or draw a circle etc.
[ "Grafis" graphics editor code, DVK3, printed on a line impact printer ]
[ ES7040 line impact printer ]
Physical-to-digital-to-physical vecrtor graphics on DVK3 (PDP-11 platform)
[ "Happy New Year of the Dragon" - a drawing firstly made on tracing paper, then digitalized by placing it over the computer screen and manually tracing with a graphics editor, then printed on a dot-matrix printer ]
