:O Wow. Nice introduction. 10 years for me (not professionally, though, sadly, although I damn well should be, by now! Life has sorta kicked me down too many times, so it's more of a hobby and sometimes a way to make some cash here and there, as well as help out friends/family) My first Windows rig had 64MB SD-RAM... and those were good times, but before that I had an Acorn, and before that an Amstrad; those were good days, too!
Ah, man, I miss that Acorn, I got into BASIC a tiny bit back then, but sadly I sucked at it. HTML and DOS are about the only languages I can be bothered with, and more importantly, that interest me. :P I think I might see if I can run a virtual Acorn OS on my system; that'd be so kewl! That Acorn machine I had, was sat in the loft for several years, and was probably worth HEAPS, but, this I didn't know, and sold it for £40 I believe it was.
If I only I had kept a hold of that gem. The first computer I ever used was at primary school, and that was an Acorn. :|
Anyway.. I digress.. WELCOME TO THE SITE!
