I was just chatting with some friends tonight online and we were looking up some of my old projects and we couldn't believe how much things have been updated.

If you ever wondered where i originally started in the computer industry or should i say scene, you can check out some of my original work from when i was a kid of about 13-14...

When i first got into computers, i wrote music and designed logos and graphics for games on the commodore 64 and Amiga computer, and also release demos with other groups. Our scene demos and stuff were spread around the world via normal mail on discs.

We sold a few games directly to publishers, who then sold the games all of the world.. BombSquad was one of our popular ones, it was a bomberman rip off really.. haha DJB and I both did the music on that one.. (U all know djb from the auto installer deluxe on xbox-hq.com).

Well, to cut it short, I just thought id share some of my very old music with you guys, and some links to my older projects like flashgames.

http://www.lemon64.com/music/browse.php?dir=802
https://www.sidamp.com
https://www.c64-hq.com
https://www.sidamp.com

My Scene name for Graphics and Cracking/Swapping was "Patto":
http://noname.c64.org/csdb/scener/?id=3836

When i did co-op music with djb for games and worked together on stuff we called ourselves "pearl":
http://noname.c64.org/csdb/scener/?id=16870

If you want to know more about my past and things i have been apart of you can search google.

You will probably find my free flashgames like frogger, supersprint and many others that i wrote and was apart of, plus tonnes of other info. pretty interesting really.. God i feel old..

I hope you find all of the HQ sites interesting and our members help you out in which ever project your undertaking.

Here are some more interesting links about me and what I do:

Ned Nebula - Flash Games
- http://www.flashgamepro.com/playgame/1785/ned-nebula.html

Ned Nebular was written in about 4hrs, and most hand drawings were scanned. It took me and Dave (the artist) around 2 hrs to get a sample working, but here is the final version. We could have spent much more time making it better, but I also was writing many other games, music, and at that time a FLASH Games website module (http://flashgames.xbox-hq.com)

So, if you haven't guess already, i do a little of everything, because i have to, where i live no one understands anything i talk about.. hahah funny shit!

update:
Just added a picture taken of me when i was sixteen at a demo party for the c64 where we traded cracks, demos and other cool stuff. Hilarious digitized photo on a 8-bit pc. woo hoo.

Both DJB and I are from way back mate. We were part of the Australian Underground Scene for C64 and AMIGA and were very well known when we attended the cracking and hacking parties since everyone used our work on their crack intros hahaha.. funny stuff..

We were part of a group in Australia called TDU (The Digital Undergound) which was the most respected group out of over 100 other groups. DJB and I also were part of many european groups, and we knew guys like rob hubbard and jeron tel who wrote amazing music for video games back in the 80's and 90's.

I got kickedout of home really young and i slowed down then, since i didnt have a computer. shame really, i was going to be in the games industry as a musician before all that shit happened.

oh the memories,

last thing:

If you ever see a commodore 64 emulator, you will see alot of my music and DJB's music on there, you won't even realise.
