There are things I’m forced to write about online and it transpires I am just one of those many things.
As always I barely know where to start, so I guess I’ll start at the beginning. I was born in Toronto and continued to go to school there (as one generally does). I started to build my own interest in computers through my poorly funded state provided education, where the school board could only afford Commodores and Apple ][‘s. I spent a lot of time playing, working and pissing about with them.
To the point where, when the school was going to bin them I got first grabs at having my own C64 (hey they offered!). I eventually managed to upgrade to a machine with Windows in 1994/1995 and an Apple Classic. During these days I started to find out about BBSes and that darn fangled internet.
I downloaded my own board software and it started from there, MMN was born in 1996.
Years passed on and I continued to work on this project ever since. During my life, I decided to move countries back in 2002 to Bristol (UK). I stayed there until 2013 when I lived my dream and moved to Paris.
I’ve been here ever since and I’m probably never going to leave. Because you know, Paris.
I’m not only passionate about classic computing, but ironically enough learning/speaking French (I think I can thank my québécoise grade 6 teacher for that) and cycling. I enjoy techno/hardcore music and was pretty much the only person in school who was in to Dance before it became the mainstream pop shit we all know and want to burn.
Since 2000 I’ve also been ranting continously blogging on LiveJournal, I try to update it but working in a bar can easily suck the free time from your hands. Oh yeah, I manage a bar.
In my previous work experience I have worked in retail and call centres in supervisory/management positions. Basically I manage shit and I do it well. One of the perks of growing up gay and being educated in Toronto I guess, managing people, expectations and not getting shot in the process (we had school shootings before they were cool, you know proper gangs and shit).
I have a personality that can gel well with any other personality types, I don’t judge people and I take them for who they are. I also seem to be chronically single #irony.
If you’d like to talk to me I can be found on MMN as kevin, Toronto FreeNet as dn866, Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and other popular social networks (all linked at the top of this page).
