How I Crashed My First Computer Within First Hour Of Owning It

I bought my first computer when I was 13 with my Bar Mitzvah money. I told my parents I was going to use it for homework, but the truth was that I was hopelessly addicted to video games and PCs (or IBM Compatables as we called them in those days) were way ahead of console game systems. The game that really inspired me was Sierra’s King’s Quest. I played it at my friend Jeremy Levine’s house and loved the fact that it was a puzzle game in a fantasy world. Like Zork but with graphics. The worlds were vast and non-linear.
