Hi all, my name is Charlie, I'm from New Zealand, and I'm officially a Beer Drinking A**hole!
I'm a electrical technician, I'm 51, I've been messing with PC's at a medium skill level since a 286 was a hot machine! My first PC was an 80286 with a green screen, and I played games on the damn thing as much as I did work on it. My next PC was a red-hot Arche 386-SX/16 with (gasp!) 1Mb RAM. The RAM cost me $1,000, but I was the envy of the computer club.
I mess with multiple PCs regularly, I have three in my 'office' at home connected via LAN network, and I don't imagine I will ever buy a pre-built PC, I love building them and installing what *I* want on it.
If I didn't spend so much time gaming I might actually be moderately competent with these computery thingeries, but I work hard, so when I get home I like to relax and chill out with the BDA guys on TeamSpeak.
