It all started with an old HP-25 calculator back in 1975, there were a couple of games you could program, Nimb, and some kind of lunar landing game. Well I keyed in those games and played them repeatedly. Next came the home console for Pong, and I never looked back.

At home I've got 6 computers on the network I set up, a TV just for game consoles, a NES, two Super NES consoles, a Nintendo 64, 3 game cubes, a Wii, and XBox, and... oh yes, nearly every handheld from Nintendo as well. I'm currently contemplating a PS3, but I'm still on the fence.

Oh, and I have 3 sons and a husband too. And as life would have it, my husband hates video games. Oh the irony. But from as early as possible I got my three boys into playing video games with me. They're completely corrupted now.

And work too, that does take up part of my time as well. Just something I have to get out of the way so I can get back to playing, or (ugh) cleaning our perpetually cluttered house (my three boys are agents of entropy!)

I'll see if I can squeeze in a blog between family, work, and gaming now and then.
