The Gamer Tag

Read more “The Gamer Tag”

While searching for other gaming blogs to subscribe to, I’ve seen a phenomenon repeated on several of them called The Gamer Tag. Basically it’s just copying a list of questions related to video games that other bloggers have also answered. Examples of this can be found at e.g. A Reluctant Hero, The Hannie Corner and A Geek Girl’s Guide. But there are probably many other great examples out there.

So, with the twist of me being the pure PC gamer that I am, I’ve decided to have a go at this one too.

ECE Show II in 1990

Here are some of the pictures I took at the ECE Show II in London, September 1990.

The fourth part in my blog series about my computer chronicles had these words about it:

I went there on a ship with Niels from Channel 42 and his friend, Henrik. The Ikari guys also went there. I didn’t try to sell our music at the show this time, I was just there for fun. I briefly met Charles Deenen but it was merely to exchange a sentence or two. And just as I feared that we would never find each other at the show as agreed, Deek from Scotland suddenly popped up and introduced himself.

Computer Den in 1995

This is a small gallery of my “computer den” at my parents place in 1995, just prior to moving into my own apartment in Vangede – where I’m still living at the time of typing these letters.

So this is where it all started and ended on the Commodore 64. Where I created my music editors on both the C64 and AdLib on the PC, and where I composed most of my chiptunes.

Again, I apologize for the potato quality. It was a really lousy camera.

C64 Freaks

Here’s a collection of photos from 1988 to 1999 of various oldskool computer freaks, including yours truly. I apologize for the potato quality of the earlier ones – both my camera and my scanner at the time sucked.

People who know me would probably want me to explain those two last ones. I’ve been overweight most of my life, but around that time I actually managed to lose more than 30 kg.

Too bad it didn’t last long. 🙄
