When Did You First Use A Computer?

Shel Israel's post about seniors and computing has me wondering when I first started using a computer??? Shel started in 1982.

I know I started using a computer in at least 1984. However, both my Dad and Brother are computer programmers. My Dad from 1960, while I recall my brother made his first computer, either in the 70’s or early 80’s. I grew up stepping over vacuum tubes and transistors in our workroom. Does by association count if we are talking about seniority?

When did you first start using a computer? What did you use, and where?
