HERE'S A BIT ABOUT ME...
I WAS BORN ON MARCH 4th 1967,I LIVE IN LEEDS AND HAVE MY A LEVELS IN MAY 85.
MY FIRST COMPUTER WAS A ZX81 EQUIPT WITH 16K OF WOBBLE,I BECAME SUPERB AT ZX BASIC AND SOON TIRED OF IT DUE TO ITS AMAIZING SPEED (0.000000001 MPH).
THIS PROMPTED ME TO TEACH MYSELF Z80 MACHINE CODE,THIS I DID AND WROTE SOME BITS AND BATS SUCH AS "ANTS IN YER PANTS" AND "SMOKERS COUGH".
I THEN MOVED ONTO THE SPECTRUM & I WROTE SOME STUFF FOR IT.
I NOW USE THE ZX81 TO HEAT MY BEDROOM!!
THEN ONE DAY I SAW AN ADVERT LOOKING FOR  PROGRAMMERS TO WORK FOR ALLIGATA.
I ANSWERED IT, HAD AN INTERVIEW AND NOW I'M WORKING ON A FREELANCE BASIS FOR THEM.
