Hi there! My name is Reeaz Ramoly and I am passionate about programming. I jumped into the IT world in 1988, yes 1988!, even before internet was available in Mauritius.

Being curious and always eager to venture into new directions, I started with electronics immediately after school. I got enrolled on a distance course from France for the basic level. At the same time I was spending time exploring my HSC gift, a computer!

I received a Sharp MZ-80K, as seen in the photo below:

Here are the specs:

  • CPU speed: 2MHz
  • RAM: 20K
  • Display: Monochrome, 40 columns
  • Tape recorder, no hard disk, not even floppy disks

I later upgraded the display to 80 columns.

more to come …
