Background Info

I first started using computers at school, aged 5, when we used Logo (a programming language) software on a BBC Micro to control a "turtle". I also recall using various edutainment (educational & entertainment) software to learn the alphabet and "QWERTY" keyboard layout. When I was about 8 I recall using a light-pen and tablet in conjunction with images on a computer (not sure what model) to identify health & safety risks (eg. electrical cable infront of electric lawn mowers path!).

At home I spent most of my young childhood playing with various toys of the era (He-Man, Transformers etc.) and table-top games (Munch-Man, Scramble, Grid Iron, Firefox etc.). The latter led my interest in videogames and was the reason my parents decided to get a Spectrum 128K (with six light-gun games) in the early 90's. Thus my programming began. As you would probably expect my first few games were rubbish. One, called UNTTR (United Nations To The Rescue), was trashed when the source tape got chewed up and I decided to stop programming. A year later (1994) my parents got me a Megadrive for my birthday and my love of games consoles (mainly by Sega and Nintendo) began.

In 2001 I bought a 2nd hand Amiga off of a well-known auction site and discovered Spaceballs: State Of The Art demo. This led me back into computers and once I found AMOS Basic I knew I wanted to get into programming again.
