ito ang unang unang personal computer na ginamit ko. ang Tandy/Radio Shack TRS-80 model III. mayron siyang Zilog 8-bit Z-80 microprocessor, running at a whopping 2.03 MHz. malaki ang kanyang 4K na RAM at marami ka nang mapapatakbong program dito.mayron siyang 12″ na black and white monitor na may 16 X 64 text (what pixels are you talking about?). dalawang 5.25″ na floppy drive na may malaking 178K na storage. kasya na rito ang buong TRS-DOS operating system.
i remember the very first machine problem given to me by my instructor… it was a simulation of a falling ball. gumawa raw ako ng program that will compute the rate of acceleration ng isang bumabagsak na bola. the height of the drop is to be entered by the user. your program must be able to give the rate of acceleration at any point of the ball’s drop that is also given by the user. in your computation, please use this “so and so i forgot oh it was so long time ago” branch of integral calculus that makes use of “so and so i forgot oh it was so long time ago” fibonacci series. man, i was hooked.
