Hi, I have been registered on the forums for about six months now but never posted or introduced myself, I guess I have just been sort of busy, until now.
Anyway, I have had a passion for computers since I first saw one being used, I was probably eight or so and it took off from there, when I was in primary school I used to help the schools IT teacher with odd jobs in exchange for computer lessons I stall remember telling my Dad over and over all the parts I had learned on the computer. I kept improving my skills thought myself java from you tube tutorials, and studied computers in my spare time. Although I have always found computers interesting I for an unknown reason have a passion for microcomputers, being a nineties kid I grew up with VCR players and dial up internet, I never learned basic, or experienced the many nostalgic memorys others have, maybe that's why I have always loved those early 8-bit micros, I wanted to experience what I missed out on.
About me: I'm 15 I have seven siblings, live in Auckland and am homeschooled. I have 0 yeah zero
vintage computers although I have bidded on many vintage trademe auctions I often get outbidded and I also don't have the space, its emulators for me. I would one day love to build up a small collection
My favourite micros are Apple IIs, Osborne 1, BBC micro, I better add Commodore 64, 70s single board computersare also pretty cool.
Oh and I'm a huge linux, GNU and open source fan
