Baby On Board

Been a couple months since my last post – not that I normally post here daily or anything. “Why the hiatus,” do you ask? The answer is that my wife and I just had a baby! Our daughter came into the world on May 3rd, just after midnight. Our first child. Her name is Rory. She came by emergency C-section about six weeks early, but has been doing just fine from day one. And of course, there’re pics of her. She’s great, as you can see. :-)

But down to business – do chime in as to which vintage computer you folks out there think I should start her on. Something super simple like an Atari 2600 at first? Or right to a home computer like an Apple II or C64? It’s not as if I can just set her up with a modern PC or Mac and allow her to miss “the journey.” And at what age?

So much to organize, so little time!

    Congrads. You have some fun to look forward to. I have a little girl going on 3 in November. When they said “I love you daddy” it is the best feeling.

    Glad you posted – I was about to email you and ask if you died or something.

    I would start her with a C64!

    Thanks! It’s been busy, and with time short, I’ve had to focus on my for-profit sites (like iPod Hacks) at the expense of this one. But we’ve adjusted to the routine now and things are feeeling a little more “normal.” :-) And, as you’ll see in my next post, little Rory has not utterly distracted me from the hobby at hand….
