I used to be caxis0, but changed my display name to broooooooce
I'm a systems engineering undergrad, before that I was a bartender and before that, a mainframe operator.
My first computer was a Commodore VIC-20, my first IBM clone was a 386-SX 25 with an 80MB HDD and 2 megs of 30 pin ram.
I blew it up and survived the following months on a 286 10Mhz box with no HDD running a terminal program from a floppy disc. . .
and it rocked.
Also: Tie Fighter is the best computer game ever made.
