We covered last time about some of the um, lawnmowing adventure that I tried some of the, um, a pageant video recording that we had tried. I even got into then I got heavy into basketball.
Just really felt like that was the best thing for me and got out there and got connected with what it is I wanted to do. And every now and then for some extra money, if I want to have, you know, date, money or time or get a little walking around money go to see movie money kind of thing that I would help my dad. And sometimes I’d get inadvertently roped in to be able to help with a project. Other Times I would plan for it and we’d say, you know what, here’s what we can do. I can work that around my basketball schedule is I’m trying to expand what it is that I’m good at, what I can do. And um, and eventually I really got the niche. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa I mean, when I was young, probably. Oh, I don’t remember. I mean, whatever the first computers came out, it was a, a two 86, a 12 is the first one that we had.
And so it was a 12 megahertz to 86 computer. It had 40 megabyte of hard drive space and it had 640 kilobytes of memory. And I remember we started off, it was, it was Ms. dos three was our first operating system that we had on that. And uh, my dad used it with a program called [inaudible] and so we had as an invoice management system that we were trying to use it, we had to figure out how to code that all out now to put that together. And so I just, I mean, I just just directly jumped into it because that was one of the, just I love the thought process of how it work, computers work, the digital technology from it. Um, and at the time we had a, we upgraded because we, you know, we went all out. We weren’t going to get one of those monochrome black and white monitors.
No, no, no. We had to have the best. My Dad wanted to have the best out of the models that we had, what they called a CGI, a monitor. It was awesome. I think it had four or six color monitor. It was just, Carpet Cleaning Tulsa, it was, it was fantastic. And uh, I need to add a special video card for it, you know, you get those four to five different colors, six different colors if you could combine them just right. And so we went through and played all these little small game like snake and all these basic games where you’re real simple things, you know, had a little move, a little character around playing pong and stuff like that. And so I just found, I really fell in love with computers that are deep love for computers, carpet cleaning, Tulsa since 1998. We’re going back to some of the early things and what we drew two and some of the stuff that caused us to get to where we are and starting complete carpet.
And early on I had a love for computers and I always wanted to start a computer repair company or a computer building company. And so I would delve into computers every time I would go through. I took a lot of computer classes in, in high school. It was a programming level class. I would move up to, um, learn some basic and Pascal, a little bit of c plus plus. And just wanted to try to delve into anything that had to do with computers, love building that helped build the computer lab at both of our schools. And, um, you know, set up the networks and try to help with some of the other classes and just volunteer because always want to be around people who were working on our new, about computers and, you know, built all of our, all of our own computers. Every time my dad would have the money to upgrade to another computer where instead of buying a dell or some prepackaged thing, I would always go out there and custom build one I’d ever, Carpet Cleaning Tulsa, moved up from a to 86 to a three 86.
It was a three d, 6:20, and then finally got into the four 86 lines. I got to have a, um, an Esx, I’m 30 and I did, you know, we just didn’t have the money to really go all in to the dex 40, which was just, you know, big. But I thought managed overclock it a little bit and get it go from like 30 to 33 and just really blew some sb because I want to play Oregon trail. I wanted to play, um, one of my favorite games at that time was a gold rush by Sierra and because my parents obviously were, I think very good parents and in making sure I didn’t get into stuff that was going to damage my mind or damaged my thought processes. But uh, on the downside always had to pick very family friendly games. So get a ton of gold rush, got a ton of Oregon trail in to beat it.
And then try beating again. Just do all these different things and connect in with Hugo’s adventures. And all of these free space stuff were back at that time. The bulletin board systems that libraries were really big. And so we’d go to the library and I go and I check it every now. Then apogee was creating a commander keen series, Canadian doom series creating all these different, um, Duke nukem series, all of the early video game series, all the little side platformers trying to compete with Nintendo at the time. And all my friends had had attended. And I was at the library looking at bulletin board systems for what they called shareware. And so you could go and you could share the first five to 10 levels of a game and then if you wanted to, you could then buy at a premium the rest of the levels or unlock the rest of the levels for another five or 10 or $20, whatever it was.
And so they had this whole shareware system set up throughout all of the library system. So you could go there with your floppy disk, take your little five and a quarter, or maybe you’re three and a half inch floppy disk and you take it in there. You’d have to go in there, you’d pay to have to operate the system, go onto their library system, put in your disk, download the copy of the game that you want to take it back to your home and then figuring out how to install it. And these days you had to actually configure the games. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. I early on went through all the different transitions out of the personal computing systems so I could try to stay on top of it. I just loved to all of the different games and went into the wing commander series and all these different early games that would go through and drive my love for building really high end specialized computer systems, but beyond just building a specialized computer system, something that would work because there was always a problem to be solved.
There’s always something that he’d be fixed. Somebody’s, you know, especially in this era, anybody would look at a person’s computer and they knew what it could do, but their eyes roll back in their head as far as figuring out how do I make this mouse connect to this place? How do I get this floppy system? How do I even get the computer to boot up? There is no sound. Why is there no sound? How do I get anything more than the the beep, beep beep that the computer’s making. How do I get it to actually play synthetic sound? What do I do? Actually add speakers in a sound card. I mean all the different things we went through from Cga to vga to Super Vga to the. All the different monitors wind into full hd. My connection that moved through all those things, I just loved it all.
I just really connected with it all and so my big thing, my next big thing I knew that I was going to do it would be save up money to start a computer business and there’s going to be called computer tear and I had it all written out, all my advertising and so that was my next goal that I was going to do in my high school career, but I had to make money first to build that first computer to get there and we’ll talk about that in the next episode.
