Hi, I’m Jim Leonard. I am a child of the early 1980s, defined by the personal computer explosion, new wave music, and post-modern artistic style of that era. Despite that upbringing, I am not a Mac lover (although I don’t hate them either). My parents made sure I was awake early in the morning to personally witness the first launch of the Space Shuttle, and also the first broadcast hour of MTV. I think that says a lot about my early influences.
My hobbies are centered on a particular pocket of the Nerd universe that includes the demoscene, MobyGames, Mindcandy DVDs, and 8088/CGA assembler programming. There is a trend there — see if you can find it in my writing.
Since 1994 I’ve been very happily married to my wonderful, giving, understanding wife Melissa, and together we have two boys, Sam (b. 1997) and Max (b. 1999). And no, before you ask, we did not name them after the game (although it was a happy coincidence).
If you need to email me personally, my contact info is listed in Contact Info at The Oldskool PC.
