About

I have enjoyed programming computers since they first came on the scene around 1980. First on the IBM PC jr, TRS-80 model 2 then on computers like the COCO2, C64, C128, Amiga and finally DOS & Windows. Been around computers for a very long time now. Mostly programmed in the various flavours of BASIC on those early years then finally I switched to C when I started programming on my DOS machine in the 90s. I mostly still program in C, but will probably, finally, reluctantly, switch to C++. I have grown to like certain aspects of C++ though.

I managed to create Deluxe Pacman 1 & 2 for the PC. Deluxe Pacman 1 was basically me trying to recreate the Amiga game of the same name by Edgar Vigdal for my wife who missed it since we had switched to an IBM PC (she died in Sept of 2021 and I miss her terribly). I worked on it until around 2012 when I started creating Deluxe Pacman 2. Both games are free and Deluxe Pacman 1 has especially been successful having several million downloads worldwide. It is still downloaded several thousand times per week though I have not made much money on it in donations. It is free. I have also dabbled in 3D, though I have not put anything out yet, just demos of work I have experimented with.
