Greetings from Finland

Postby mt100 » Fri Jul 05, 2019 7:53 pm

I almost forgot to introduce myself but will do it now. Computers have been part of my life since the microcomputers got common in the 1980s and have been using them almost for 40 years. Programming has been my hobby, or it was actually more a hobby in the beginning of the 1990s when I started with Borland Pascal and Assembler. I also tried to learn C++ but it was too difficult during that time. The BASIC language was too difficult for me and I still don't understand it today 30 years later...

Nowadays I'm working in the IT industry, mostly software and hardware testing. I'm no expert in cracking computer software, but I have programming knowledge so have been able to do some cracks for some games I own when game manuals have been lost. What interests me more is playing old computer games from 1980s to the middle of 1990s and I also buy old games and software on ebay for preservation purposes, so the future generations would have some possibility to experience old games and software.

Learning electronics is what I'm mostly interested now in year 2019. Electronics has always been very difficult for me to understand and transistors are the most difficult for me to understand. But I like to learn new things and don't want to stop, because I will need that knowledge when repairing vintage electronics and old computers.
