Hello

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I just thought I should mention that my first computer was a Commodore 64 and my first 'real' computer was an IBM PC, so I can bring many years of mistakes and screwups to the table. So, should you see some lapses of reason, I can use age as an excuse.

All the best,

Al

Welcome to the forum

My first also was a C64.. stil amazed how they managed to program that thing... given that the average piece of core gobbles up megabytes like nothing.

Went Apple MacIntosh, 286 8MHz, 486DX 33MHz, AMD5X86 133MHz, a Celeron 400MHz (ok, really poor at that time), Pentium 4 Northwood 3.0 GHz, Opteron 165, E6600

Has been fun so far

Thank you all for the warm welcome! I would be pleased to tell anyone everything that I know - got a minute?

@ Chozart - Those were some great times weren't they? That 486 stands out in my life and I am still using a P4 3.0C in my other computer and loving it.

@ CorpussStalker - Nothing like a good C64 backup. Mine left me long ago. Hmmm...perhaps we can trade. I am sure that I can find a K6-2 around here somewhere.

Yeap, those were the times

Fun is back though, and started with dual core, after years of some sort of stagnation prior.
