Me, I, myself & ZeroOne
I originally posted this to AntiOnline general chit chat as a reply to someone who asked how long have the people here been working with computers... Now I put it here, a little modified.
I'm 16 now and I've been using computers about the same amount of years... :-) One of my first experiences (or so I've been told and I've seen the evidences 'cause we still have got them.. :-) ) is that I broke a keyboard of an Intel 80068-computer... The keyboard was attached to the monitor (something like 8" orange-and-black) which was attached to the main unit, so it was kinda laptop... :-) Guess it weights like 15 kgs... :-)
First experience with the 'net was around '94, it think. You see I like the old-school simileys... ;-) It was a BBS, connected through a 2400bbs modem.. :-P "ATDTxxxxxxx", "ATH", ...
Every other stuff just came naturally... Began programming with QBasic, now I'm kinda good at it and in Visual Basic.
PS. If I've got some bad English don't punish me with negative AntiPoints 'cause I'm not a natural English speaker... Just learning it at school and in the computer universe... ;-) (Yeah, now praise me for writing so good English... ;-)
PPS. My homepage is found at http://koti.mbnet.fi/~villes/
PPPS. I like the Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -trilogy a lot... The signature is from it...
PS4. I don't like putting so many PS's, so don't be afraid to see these anymore....
Q: Why do computer scientists confuse Christmas and Halloween?
A: Because Oct 31 = Dec 25
