The early one had 4 K Internet Basic. Later there was an 8 K Basic. My kit was missing a zero ohm resistor and I did not install it. When switching from watching TV to the computer, the vertical hold had to be adjusted. It was running at 50 cycles and in the US it syncs with 60 cycles. I added a jumper wire in place of the resistor and all worked well. I added a surplus keyboard and tapped the video going to the modulator to drive a video monitor. The video was very much better without going through the TV tuner.

This, too, was my first computer. I remember building it from a kit. I learned to program in BASIC using this computer. I have since made programming my career, all self-taught.

My first computer, built it from the kit. lot of soldering of chip sockets, resistors, etc. When I first connected it to my TV and turned it on WOW! I was in the computer age! Type in a basic program, save it to cassette tape and you could play it again and again. Hamurabi was one of my early favorites. Great memories!

My first computer was a Microace. The keyboard was always trouble. I built it into a homemade case using an Atari 800 keyboard. I also added the flicker free board and upgraded the ROM. That made it essentially a ZX-81 or Timex 1000.
