The Beginning and The Inner Geek

Yie Ar Kung Fu’s awesome-ish Sydney rendering on the ZX Spectrum – now here I am!

Beginnings beginnings. Well, to test out this WordPress doofer I shall reach waaaaaaaaay back to December 1983 to Edinburgh, Scotland on a chill Christmas morning.

A rectangular present is seized from beneath the Safeway’s Christmas tree, already shedding pines left right and centre. The parcel is gingerly unwrapped revealing the beautiful form of my rubber-keyed Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Spectrum begat BASIC begat Computer Science degree begat Developer begat Team Lead begat etc. etc. 2010 Sydney.

Pretty tragic geekdom. Now did that work?
