I had the luck to have an Olivetti Programma 101 when I was in 5th grade 
in the early 60's.

I had learned about programming, stored programming, and the like from 
programming it.  It had the capability to create commands in its storage 
registers and execute them, and I credit that bit as a help when I later 
took up programming as such things were not a mystery.

The bad news is now that I'm playing in an expensive playground, but 
luckily have 2 of them as well as spares.  It is an expensive 
neighborhood, headed to the cost of the Lisa parts market unfortunately.
