I first got into computers when I was about 10. My parents bought it, supposedly for school work, a Pentium with 200Mhz of raw CPU power, and a Voodoo 3D graphics card.
It was installed with a few games too, including Pandimonium (I actually got into that), Theme Hospital (Funny game), Dungeon Keeper (My bro got interested in that).
The theme we had on it was a Dungeon Keeper theme too (It was built by one of my dads mates, mates and so not exactly a proffessional build, so he just put loads on). I loved what it said when it booted up, "Welcome To My Realm", and the backdrop was quite good too that I can remember.
Anyways, it ran games for quite a while, a couple years at least before I updated to an AMD Thunderbird 1.2 Ghz, Geforce 2MX400 card (Built by my dads mate) (My new PC is the first one I'd built)
I just got used to Windows really fast and enjoyed using it. I used it mostly for games at first, but then got hold of 3D Movie Maker by Microsoft and started making small films (an old program now. Basically if you built a model out of spheres and blocks, you had to move every single shape every frame (wasn't meant for that complex of movies).
This is probably how I got into Animation, and from there built up to learn other programs like Paint Shop Pro at the time for animation too.
Most of my time though was used on the old PC for learning how computers work. Breaking it quite alot, needing fixing by my dads mate again (I knew nothing then
) but I quickly learnt from my mistakes, and learnt how to fix them...
7 years later, I'm where I am now I guess. But thats how I started out
Nice story huh? lol
