Networking engineer since 20 years. Never stopped playing. Started with coax, seen birth of 10BaseT, then used token ring, FDDI, ATM, then all the Ethernet variants up to 40GB and now using VoIP, WiFi and all the rest on top of our enterprise customers. Big fan of RDR since 2010 on XBOX 360. Now RDR2 on PS4.

Gamertag:ย ย ย  Mpegforever (PSN)

Free time ? yes, sure. Walk with my dogs. And oh yes, have a wife, still 1.0. Hope not to patch ๐Ÿ˜‰

Below my favorite t-shirt.

Ciao from Italy ๐Ÿ™‚

Worked Novell though NT, DOS 2.2 to 6.2, I left all that and can sleep at night again.

Even got to use FORTRAN to stop the world from ending in 1999. Geez we had to learn that tripe, thought Id never live to have to use it.

I even had a VLD video card that handled either a whopping 4 MEGS of ram, or 16 MEGS of ram, but could not afford the 16.

Flew my first space sim called Planetary Raiders in the new interwebs, sure miss our Wildcat BBS.

Windows started with 3.1, but we resisted until 95 came out and the games no longer support line input.

My first PC was an 8088 a friend gave to me and told me to figure out how it worked, and see If i could get it going. I did.

Did not play a game until Lisa came out, it was short lived and Earth Orbiter a totally line draw game went form the Lisa right to an APPLE II.

I Admined a Novel network for a few years, the server was a smoking hot 386, DOS 3.5-6.2, and Nodes all the way to a Intel 90.

On my wall is a new U.S. Robotics K2 56k mouse pad that is filled jell, and like K2s floating about inside as you pushed the PS2 mouse across

, now we are high tech ๐Ÿ™‚

The funny part is that all this stuff is in a museum, the onlky thing missing is US.

Windoze: And what about Windows 98 ? On a desktop background showing a wreck of a boat at the bottom of the sea I remember I read once... "Windows98...what computer do you want to sink today ?"

First PC: well, let's start it from the beginning then: or no...no...will make an offline new thread for this. Be prepared !

Novell netadmin ? Wow cool. you remember netwars.exe or something like that ? vector based graphics langame where you just needed ipx loaded ? so cool.

Modems: I started when max speed was 2400 bps. Actually worked in a lab making certifications for our Telecom, so could analyze analog lines and signals, that was fun. A mess when 9600 speeds and over arrived. 56k was sure a great jump. Remember "VFAST", the pre-standard ? lol

Mouse ? No comment.... I had issues with my hand and almost don't use a mouse anymoreย  ๐Ÿ˜ž

Have a nice day, ciao
