OT: Apple at 30 - My Piece of the Big Fruit

We had Apple III (yes, the ill-fated 3 not 2) in the p-chem lab and 
nobody knew what to do with it, so I got a free rein in using it. 
That was a few years before Lisa and Macs. My first programs allowed 
me to quickly check the correctness of calculations on student lab 
reports :)

My first own Mac was SE but more memorable was a purchase of my first 
hard drive a while later: close to $1200 for the whooping 20 MB 
zero-footprint Jasmine drive. It was a big sacrifice for a graduate 
student but I felt like a king!
