Me and Computers and Gaming and the Net

Posted: 8th March 2015 in Personal

I would say I am a Hardcore Gamer, I mostly enjoy war games and sometimes driving games.  The best driving game I have played was Colin McRae Rally that was back in the days.  And I would say the first war game I played was Cannon Fodder such a good game.  I can’t recall the name of the games I had on my C64 that was a long time ago.

I can remember using a BBC Microcomputer System in primary school when I was about 5 years old and the game we played was racing (screenshot below).


Back in the days that game was Elite LOL (Laughing Out Loud).

My best computer was the Amiga 1200 I learned to do 2D animation on it and enjoyed using Deluxe Paint aswell.

I remember when my parents bought me a Pentium 3 mmx I was like wow this is so cool, then I got connected to the net through AOL they where my first isp.  I had a 36.6k modem in the days that was fast, agh dial up.  So I had the cable from the modem running across the landing and connected to my mum’s phone line, so each time she had to make a call the cable was pulled out.

When I first connected to the Net I used the hyper terminal I had this number that I connected to the dude was from Derry (Northern Ireland).  So me and him would chat daily about different things and others would join us in a chat room and discuss a range of different topics.

I have been about as one could say, and I have experienced alot of things, but we won’t get into that now, maybe later.

The computer that I have now was custom built for gaming, here are the specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Intel i5 Quad-Core Processor
8GB DDR3 ram
1 TB Hard Drive
AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series 2 gig
Arctic Power Pro 750W PSU
Blu-Ray Drive
Coolmaster Case

The last thing I upgraded was the Graphic Card, cost me inc installation £250 pounds I could have installed it myself just didn’t want to blow myself up hehe.  In the past I have built computers and added new hardware etc, but it has been awhile back in 2002 I done it.

Here is a picture of my desk it is abit messy:


I will add stuff each day if I remember, and take you through a journey into my world.  And if I find any cool sotfware or links I will share with you guys/gals/other / all for now check back soon…
