greetings from a newish member
« on: December 04, 2015, 10:00:15 PM »
I've been a fan of this site for a while. I originally found out about you when saw the exhibit at Snibston discovery museum.

I did come to the valentines day retro gaming weekend at Snibston earlier on in the year.

I'm a software engineer working on mostly web based applications nowadays but i started off back in the 8 bit days. I've always been interested in programming so i started off aged 13 with an Acorn Electron. I then moved up to a 128k Spectrum and then onto the Amiga. This is where i was most active and where i find the most nostalgia. I had an A500, A1200 and two A4000's between 1990 and 1998.

I was active on the Amiga warez scene around 1993 - 1996. I still like to keep up with the folks at EAB and Flashtro.com and if i have some spare time to contribute where i can.

Some years later i was also active on the GBA scene for a while doing trainers.

More recently I've contributed to a few open source projects here and there and developed a couple of javascript based emulators of my own

Elk JS - An Electron Emulator http://elkjs.azurewebsites.net/
EstyJS - An Atari 520ST Emulator http://estyjs.azurewebsites.net/

Well that's about it really.

Looking forward to the Christmas open day this weekend.

Hopefully maybe i'll get to meet some of you at one of the open days at some point.

Darren
