I’ve been working and playing with computer for over 30 years. My first computer was a Tandy 1000TX I got for Christmas 1987 and my love of gaming and programming began.

I purchase my first clone in 1991, a I386 DX base system. Fortunately the motherboard or CPU died in the first month. They sent me a replacement board but I discovered that the CPU was solder onto the old board. A week later I received the CPU and also Math Co processor for the trouble. It’s from this experience that I was no longer a user and started building and repairing PC’s.
