|Elevator presentation:||I began with Commodore VIC-20, where I learned BASIC programming. This dear thing was a gift from my late father. Later on I bought a Commodore 64, mostly for gaming but did also start to do some minor pixelling along with some minor MOS 6510 assembler. Avter working, saving money and selling my C64 and my three months old 1541 floppy disk station, I finally had the money to buy my first Amiga, Amiga 500. The second one was the Amiga 1200. |
Besides all gaming, I also discovered new fantastic things, such as elite BBS:es, copy parties - which later on were called demo parties - joined in no specific order demo groups such as Coitus, Napalm (NLM), Maniax (MNX), Powerline (PwL) and finally ended up in the fantastic group - eh... Oh, yes! Nukleus (NLS).
I have tried out several different creative roles, such as composing tracker music, graphics, ASCII graphics, MC68000 assembler programming, unsuccessfully tried a swapper career with a Robotics 2400 baud modem.
Having a family, a full time work with some sort of career and spending hours in getting to and from work, merely leaves you any spare time. But I still remember the good old days as a very cheerful period; the avant-garde:ish demo scene atmosphere and the people who stood behind the creation of today's computer era. I discretely left the scene with a smile on my face, but Nukleus will always have some place in my heart. <3
