    Present from my father for getting good marks in school. I REALLY wanted to play WingCommander when it came out, but they said it would never be released on my Amiga500, so ... it was a PC or nothing.

    I was the same BUT, I was put in certain classes for being "left handed". Funny thing is I taught myself algebra, after learning how computers work. How ever i did have consistent 90s in photography in high school.

    I had to do it. I came across this thread in hopes of contacting old friends. Just wondering how they are. What they're doing. How they look. April 2003 for me. I was truly into building high end systems, benchmarking and trying to keep the peace between FanATIcs and Nvidiots. Here we are almost 18 years later and despite my ambitious efforts.........I have failed miserably LOL! :p:p:D:D J/ks

    Looking at some of the names put me in a happy reminiscing place.

    Noooo! What makes you say that?

    It has been pretty quiet on the GPU front for years now.

    Yes I do. :D I'm still convinced our old fellow Guru was an A.I. computer created in Hilbert's lab. :p

    ^^^ I was a chatter box, that whispering to your mate type during lessons type chatterbox, no doubt deserved it on many occasions, but a few of the teachers back then were real nutcases, in woodwork someone broke one of the machines and the teacher flew into a rage and blamed me, it was not me because i was never a vandal even at school, but anyway he screamed at me to come up the front of the class to get the belt and i refused, so he sent me outside the class room and down the corridor to the bit at the fire escape door to wait, then came down and lunged at me, had me by the throat at one point, big bugger of a teacher as well, hands like shovels, we ended up rolling around on the floor and i managed to escape him and run out the school, i was 13 at the time.....i remember it like it was yesterday, BUT! on a positive at least i got out early that day. lol
