Well, let's see... I would have to say it all started back in '72. That was the year I was born. Grew up in sunny San Diego, and ended up spending the first 23 years of my life there. I could describe them, but I would bore you to tears, so we'll just leave it at that. I attended San Diego State University, and worked as graphic designer extraordinaire for Woodstock's pizza, where I continually drew little dragons (the mascot of Woodstock's), until I accidentally graduated from school.
Lan parties are a blast. It's a great excuse to get out of the house for 24 hours and play some online games with no lag at all. It's also a great time to swap software and collect MP3s. Here are pictures of the first lan party we had at our new house. Also there are new pix up from LanDiegoX here.
