I began coding in BASIC around the age of eleven, writing "cool" screen-saver procedures, not really serving a purpose other than exasperating, but continually expanding my young mind. Google did not yet exist, most of the learning I had to do was trial by fire or verbal instruction from a select few individuals. I made my way onto BBSes, into 2600 meet-ups and, eventually, and the internet using SLIP/PPP or shell accounts.

Then I got into scripting, interfacing with PROCOMM PLUS for DOS, so that I could program my computer to iterate through automation routines and play my text-based game for me while I was "learning" things at school.

Around the same time I got into text-based games, I started hanging out on Internet Relay Chat, or IRC. I started scripting for Unix based IRC clients like bitchX, as well as writing scripts in TCL for Eggdrop bots. Eventually Windows became a bit more user friendly and I moved to GUI applications, writing code in VB. I also starting writing mIRC scripts, as well as DLL plugins. After a while this picked up and I started writing software and miscellaneous applications in languages like C# and Delphi.
