Do you still remember your first 'real' test

I still remember my first real test.
Do you?
Since I generalise wildly, I assume that you do.
Note: my first 'real' test. Not "the first time I found a bug". For the purposes of this exercise I defined my first 'real' test as the first time I can remember purposefully thinking like a tester with regards to software and actively hunting out a bug.
You may choose a different definition - up to you. And you may have more effective recall of your formative years - bully for you. But - my blog, my story.
