Hi fellow retro gaming people!
« on: February 18, 2012, 20:12:36 PM »
Hi guys, just a little intro about myself, grand old age of 35 now, been gaming since i was 3, so 1980 odd, and have owned pretty owned much all the main, and quite a few obscure machines in my 30 years of gaming.

You may have seen me on other retro sites as 'AmigaJay' but i also use the name 'LemmingsPorts' for which i use on my Twitter and my blog Lemmings Ports ---> http://everylemming.blogspot.com/

I also run the website Gizmondo Central ---> http://homepage.ntlworld.com/justincastle/index.html the bizarre but well known for different reasons handheld from 2005, and a few months ago i published a book about the machine, which can be read about from the link above.

I have also made other numourous sites gaming sites over the last 15 years, though most don't remain now, they included NGPCUK from where neo-geo.com got help with their masterlists after it closed, and LynxUK which ran for 3 years but strangely got hacked into and deleted the week before the Lynx section of AtariAge opened oooh! ;)

Anyway enough blated linking going on! hope to chat to you guys soon.

Didn't want to start a new thread to post this, so dug up my old introductions thread, hello 5 year younger me!

Anyway wanted to post this here as it's 20 years since I first started HTML coding, not that you have to learn that anymore, but yeah 1997 was my first webpage, so I decided to make a page about what other pages I made inbetween, do you remember or use any of them?

Fantastic stuff pal, real shame we never got to know each other years ago, I'm certain we could have knocked an amazing retro site up together..

Great history. My first real experience with the internet wasn't until 1999 when the Dreamcast launched.

When building websites was fun pal, i have to admit social media has killed it all a little..

Sadly, I have to agree.  People find it much easier to post stuff in Facejunk rather than in forums. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Yeah a little i guess, i still prefer not to use social media as a base.

Btw i didn't like my homepage images i made last week, so have updated them, alot better i think, added another page too.
