About Me

When I was 18, one of my earliest jobs in the big city was working for one of the first computer stores in New York. We were the premiere NYC retailer for Apple & Atari computers. In addition, I helped (consulting/beta testing) the programmer for an old 8-bit Atari Centipede clone called "Megalegs". Matter of fact - it was my idea for him to do an Atari 800/400 rendition. This was LONG before Atari released the official version.


I use to do reviews for an old magazine -- "Video Games & Computer Entertainment" and years later, co-authored a book titled "Creating Stores on the Web" (now long obsolete). I owned just about ever computer: Atari 400, 800, C-64, Apple IIe, Apple IIc, Atari ST, Amiga, and so many PCs and laptops over the years, I lost count. Don't let me get started on consoles - to make it easy, let's just say I had ever one of 'em - lol. The best years of my gaming life, however, with with the Atari computers. I remember playing hours upon hours of StarRaiders, Rescue on Fractalus and my old time favorite 8 bit game: Necromancer. Yeah, Synapse was the bomb back then! RIP Bill Williams/


Today, I am the owner of an on-line gaming retail shop who special in international sales. tronixweb.com


Oh, and give me an old Atari game over Grand Theft Auto any day.
