Comment Re:MSX... Good memories (Score 1) 1485

My first computer was a Philips MSX VG-8020. Most trustworthy computer I've ever owned.

Sure the tapedrive would have it's ups and downs, but the actual computer got beat up so much it's incredible it never broke.

Many times I got so frustrated with a game (only really good games could ever get me to that point) that I would apply enough force to break such a device in half but the most damage I ever did to it was make some of the keys jump off, which could easily be placed back again (after I'd cooled off).

I wish I had a video of what I'd do to my poor computer to show to my wife so she can see I really have improved on my bad temper heh.
