      • I remember making a few with a ruler and pen before microcomputers when I was little. I took a few in to my elementary school class. Any young person reading this would ask before computers? PCs were once called microcomputers. I also worked on a mainframe via a dumb terminal (as we called them) and even a minicomputer, which was the size of two desks. But, no I have not created one online, so that sound fun.
