About

According to my grandmother at the age of three I pointed to a computer and said I’m gonna work with those. That was in 1972. Apparently I had a good sense about how my future would come to unfold back then. With time sadly my sensory skills of the sixth kind have somewhat diminished.

VIC-20 emulated in VICE

It took about ten years before I got my first computer, a Commodore VIC-20, which I still have. Although it’s been collecting dust in the basement for quite a long while now. Nowadays you can fulfill your retro needs with the VICE emulator, a C64/C128/VIC20/PET emulator. When I hit ninth grade we got 5! IBM PC’s at my school of which one had a whopping 512 k RAM though I have to admit I wasn’t much into coding back then. We mostly used them for math classes.

Fast forward to today

I work as a consultant for Giraff Data in Stockholm specializing in custom development on the MS .net platform. Apart from working with code I enjoy playing around with it for fun.

I also enjoy photography, arcade games (which I write about here), snowboarding, inlines and scuba diving. Oh and of course the most important of all; my family. My wonderful wife, Co0kieMon, and kids; Kaospojken, Laban, Will.I.am and Special K 😉
