Today I’ve been computing for 25 years!

I’m 33 today and that marks 25 years since I got my first computer at the age of 8. My dad bought me a Spectrum 48K from Dixons in Yeovil, and in those days you got programming manuals with your computers. Because games costs a lot of money for little kids (yeah even those Mastertronic £1.99 games) I learned to program my own. I never stopped making games and now it’s my job, how cool is that? 😉

    good old times 😀

    I started programming with a commodore 64 the day I broke the tape reader (datasette).

    When my Spectrum suddenly broke one day I bought a C64 from a friend. Loved the games on that machine but it wasn’t as easy to program as the Spectrum (or BBC) so I kept going round friends houses to program theirs!

    Well, Happy Birthday! 🙂

    25 years of computing, eh? That’s a bit longer than I’ve been alive! I salute you.

    Hey thanks all! It was a good day. Let’s hope I can make it to the next significant computer number, 64!
