[Overly-Excited Generic Introduction Title]...from Mississippi?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody =D

Just recently got really deep into benchmarking and overclocking after spending years not touching it.

I started playing with computers when I was 5 years old. My first computer was an old IBM business machine, but I spent most of the time playing AD&D: Eye of the Beholder and King's Quest IV. I still have my old computer and my old games sitting in my closet. After that, I began messing with BASIC on a Commodore 64 when I was 6 or 7 years old. It was conveniently located at my Uncle's house right up the road, and he taught me how to write simple programs. Those two things fueled a passion for computers that I've been riding on my whole life.

I took classes at New Horizon's Computer Learning Center in Memphis, TN with my mother, and scored my A+ and MSCE when I was 14 years old. I also took classes in C+, Java, and CISCO (Professional), but never took the tests due to...laziness? I suppose. I got a really great job at a computer repair place about 20 miles from where I lived. It gave me a ton of experience in consulting, networking, software development, and all that jazz.

Everything was all good until college. Three semesters, flunked out. I pretty much gave up on everything for a while. I got kicked out of my house for a year, and finally rediscovered that drive that I lost.

Now, I'm building custom gaming computers, managing a pizza restaurant, and attending college for my Master's in Computer Engineering.

Oh, and I'm a hardcore Pokemon fan.

NO, DON'T LEAVE ;-;
