Consider "Pre-Altair" has a better more historically-accurate name...The Home brew Era. Reduces the need for the descriptive subtitle necessary to define it.

Very nice. Yes, I like to think that I haven't left the homebrew era yet.

Well, then there's the matter of "what do you mean by computing?". In my far-off younger years, a popular science fair project was a machine to play tic-tac-toe. It used relays. Was that a computer?

Naw, in those dayes the computer was the woman who knew how to use the adding machine...
