Correção de texto: My first computer

Hello People, espero que alguém possa dar uma revisada básica, Thanks :D

My first computer was actually my sister, but I used to use the same way, It was one of those very old computers with a heavy and huge screen and a CPU that was not different.
I remember who spends most of time playing online, or when the old dial-up internet did not work, I used to play the computer games, as solitaire game and that pinball game, which was my favorite.
It is true that took a long time to turn on, without speaking of the time it took to get a good connection with the internet, and it had that unforgettable and annoying sound that's everyone heard once in life os dial-up internet.
Compared with computer of today was a simple computer, with almost no memory that I could not do anything, but that time was more cool and interesting thing a child as I could have.

My first computer was actually of my sister, but I used just the same. It was one of those very old ones, with a heavy and huge screen, as was the CPU too.
I remember (1) spending most of the time playing games online, or when the (2) dial-up connection had some/a problem I would (2) play the (offline/Windows) games on that computer, such as Solitaire or Pinball (my favorite one).
It took a long time to turn it on, not to mention the time it took to get connected with the internet, it was slow, it took ages to load a website, while it had that unforgettable (suggests nostalgia)...

/while it had all that line noise coming, tone, statics and all that jazz. Everyone was familiar with that sound at that time!

It was a very simple machine, compared with modern computers/compared with today´s computers. But even with almost no memory that limited me
not to do much, just run a few programs. Anyway, at that time it was the coolest and most interesting thing a child like me could have.

(1)maybe "I remember we spending"...but then you use "I used to play" next, so let´s leave it that way.
(2)in a way, dial-up connections are old, so we leave that information out.
(3) would, meaning it happened from time to time, so "you had a habit of playing" another game when the dial-up went on the fritz!

Dial-up sound, the Internet connection would be by (landline) phone, and needed a modem in-between, then connected to a PC.
To some of us, that was not long ago. :lol:

So, every time you wanted to use the Internet at the wee hours, you had to wake up a couple of neighbours, or your parents.
Thank you, PPAULO, your observations always saving !!

Thank you too, for being so kind. And for overlooking my mistakes, he hee.
But correcting myself...Nearby "would play" where it reads (2) [for the second time, ouch!] it should read (3).
