I have been programming computers since 1979 (I was 9 then) I wrote my first program from scratch in 1980 (connect 4.. It even told you when you won). My dad and I played it for years. I was inspired by the atari 2600. Since then, I have built and given away numerous vandergraph generators and multiple other static related toys. I have always been a tinkerer, and can't wait to get my replicator.
