I'm a computer tech who cut his teeth on the Atari 1200xl and who has loved the Atari computer ever since. I used to room with Kenny Sallot (The Timelord), and we ran the Tardis BBS in our apartment living room on a 130xe with an ATR8000 and four 720k drives. We later moved to an MIO and a 20 meg hdd. I've gone by the handle "Technoid Mutant" since my birthday in 1984. It was then I received an MPP1000e modem as a gift. The manual makes reference to 'Computer Neophyte and Technoid Mutant', and I was born.
I Joined the Navy in 1988 and went oversees for a few years. I was in Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 74, the Seabees were an interesting tour. I am a veteran of the First Gulf War, spent the seven months from November to May in the trackless desert of Raas Al Mishab, Saudi Arabia.
After the Navy I started my tech career, and started Cheez Daddy's House of Funk BBS here in Miami, running on a Black Box, Multiplexer, a 130xe with 576k and a couple of 512k 800xl's.
Presently I'm in support of the Atari community. You can call on me to help with repairs, upgrades, historical information and advice.
