My first computer was the C64, when i was 5 and i didnt get a different one until about 5 years later when I got myself on win 3.1 (with tabworks)

while I had a blast on the C64, at the time i was too young to really appreciate it. when i got my compaq with its ultra big HDD of 65 megabytes and my copy of Buzz Aldrins Race to Space simulator i spent HOURS on that thing tinkering and learning my way around DOS. the tabworks interface was amazing at the time, just point and click? how awesome!!!

it was only a year or so later when win 95 came out and changed everything. for the better?? I dont know.

the biggest one being that the attacks were due to a movie (that no one saw)

the next was about claiming to have no idea what was going on at the time (some emails that have come to light show she DID in fact know, granted it was a second email address {that she denied having 2 emails prior to locating so make that 3 lies)

Should I go on?

well this was actually a calibration not a "test". From my understanding to make sure no stray particles are going "off track" they ran this test. So while it is the first time its been run to full power, it wasnt for any reason other than calibration. Now, I dont know if they are collecting and running any data on the collisions that did happen
