The story doesn't add up
He got his first computer at 11 and used it to get on the internet. Did he invent that too?

A computer from 1982... In SA.
I took it to mean that's the computer he eventually used to learn about the internet, ie. he had it for a few years.

Ok so he did not use his first computer to hit the web. It was a Spectravideo by the looks.
Found the source which would have been in basic.
Will post shortly.

Spectravideo was an 8 bit PC based on the Z80 instruction set. In a league with Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum though probably sub them.
(only because I was of the Speccy master race)
