I started playing with computers when I was 10-years old, when I got an Atari 400 for Christmas.
I learned how to program in Atari BASIC, and quickly learned 6502 assembly so that I could squeeze every last bit of power out of that tiny 1.44 Mhz
6502 MOS processor!
In high school and college, my computer programming hobby shifted to the world of PCs. I learned object oriented
Turbo Pascal and
Turbo C++. Of course, I also delved into high-performance graphics programming using
80x86 assembly so that I could squeeze ever last bit of power out of that slightly more powerful 16 Mhz processor and VGA card!
During college, I fell in love with
UNIX, the Internet, and
Linux (when it was still a baby).
From time to time, I have played with other programming languages such as
Today, I spend most of my day on my Mac, on servers, and on the web.
