Programming

I have been programming since 1984. My first computer was a Radio Shack Color Computer with 4k of memory. Now I am on an Intel Core i3 with 4 gigs of memory. Big difference.

Since the mid-90s most of my programming has been in Visual Basic doing client/server type programming. As a hobby, I also program fun stuff. Unfortunately a lot of the fun stuff never gets finished. I have recently branched out into PHP, C#, and XNA. Using XNA in VB is a trial because there are not a lot of web resources dedicated to it.

As I gain proficiency, I plan on putting up some tutorial type entries concentrating on VB and XNA.

My Gaming

I’ve been involved with role-playing games since 1980, and computer games since 1984 or thereabouts. I’ve played most of the table-top rpg’s out there. A few of my favorite, or go-to games are D&D (3rd Ed), GURPS, and Hero System.

Recently I’ve started to write games. I self-published a wargame called Astra Imperia. I’ve been working on a fantasy rpg called Eldritch Adventures and a science fiction rpg called Via Astrum. I’ve also been working on another wargame called Project:GOLEM, in addition to a second edition of Astra Imperia.

On the computer side of things, I’ve got a futuristic computer hacking rpg called CyberHack. I’ve also toyed around with a computer rpg based on Eldritch Adventures and a wargame based on Astra Imperia.
