|About myself:||I started computing back in late 1970s with an Apple II clone and watched the evolution of technology to the present day.|
I enjoy both older and modern computer games. I mostly collect the latter as they have more appeal to me.
My all-time favourite book about computing history: "Fire In The Valley" and the brilliant: "Pirates Of Silicon Valley" movie.
In my spare time I like reading fiction or non-fiction eg. Raymond E. Fiest's "Riftwar series", Janny Wurts "Sorcerer's Legacy" her best, Tom Clancy, Colin Dexter's "Inspector Morse series" and others. I enjoy listening to variety of different music from 1970s to today's.
