I have had a computer since I was 9 years old. My first computer was a Kaypro Lugable with 16k of ram and an 8 inch floppy drive, that my uncle gave me. It had basic and fortran. The OS was cp/m. Back then there wasn’t any commercial games. So if i wanted to play games, I had to write them. My first game I wrote was pyramid solitaire game. By the time I was 12 I was writing 6510 assembly language on the commodore 64. Since, I have had a great number of computers, from an IBM XT, Commodore Amiga, 286, 386 to my dual core system today.
I have been on the internet for a very long time. I first used a commodore 64 and 300 baud modem to access the usenet news via bulletin boards in the early 1980’s. I am still a big usenet fan. My favorite groups being rec.humor.funny, alt.binaries.*, and alt.crafts.*.
Of course, my most well known program is WinFF. WinFF has been used around the world to help people post videos to the internet despite oppressive regimes.
I like scifi, action, and thriller movies. My favorite movies are Quenten Tarantino’s. I do read a lot, mostly “How To” books. I also like to read philosophy, true crime, and spy novels.
