Thought I should introduce myself..

Hi everyone!

I'm Stian, 27 year old from Norway. Got my first Amiga 500 when I was 7, back in 1989. I remember how awesome it was compared to the C64, which I had been using since I was 5-6 years old. By the time I was 10 I had opened my very first BBS and I was "naturally" thrown into the warez scene, moving files around with those old 14.4k modems we had at that time.

Started doing ascii art for BBS'es and release groups and just started drawing again (for fun) after several years off. I called myself trasher (TRS) back in the good old glory days of BBS'es.

Anyways, I love Amiga and I've recently had several A500's, A600's and A1200's which have been used frequently. I am currently only using WinUAE though, as it saves me a lot of hassle (and space).

Oh, and as a living I run a small tech consultant company in Oslo, Norway.

That's all for now I guess.

Hi dekarAF - I love that ascii art - be great to see some of your work... it's always great to find some ascii art on readme files on old Amiga disks...

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!

The last ascii I did (in newer time) was for TuS^ascii and I believe some of them are to be found in their 1st and 2nd ascii packs.

Here and here.

All files name TRS* are mine. Remember this is old school ami/x ascii, not new school or block/ansi.

I did a lot of menusets for BBS'es back in the days. I really wish I held onto those, but they're long gone I believe.

Use AcidView for Windows or similar text editor/viewer for Amiga (use Topaz font) when watching.

“Old 14.4k modems….” Thats hilarious.. I started on Atari 8 bits with 300 baud. Wouldn’t trade those memories for the world!
