About Me

My name is Bobby - and I got my first Atari 400 from a thrift store in 1990. It came with Asteroids, and I loved that system more than my NES. I got to practice Basic programming and learned some Assembly Language for the MOS 6502 - at 10 years old!

All of my childhood memories were destroyed in Hurricane Rita. My parents held onto everything in my old hometown of Lake Charles, Louisiana. I haven't seen my parents since before the new millenia, and not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for growing up dirt poor. My parents are disabled and live off the government, so they had plenty of time to make sure I was mentally stimulated. I practically lived in the public library.

Now days I'm a full time IT Systems Engineer, and I freelance projects for all types of customers while working part time in the datacenter for Eisenhower Medical Center.

I would really like to run a BBS from an Atari 800 connected to two 20MB Corvus Drives - all I'm missing is a Lantronix UDS10 and some software!
