    Hi from WastedTruth, real name Matt. I'm a 41 year old dad of four so I don't get a lot of time to game these days, but when I do, it's usually Star Citizen.

    My first gaming experiences back in the early eighties were on Atari VCS. I remember being obsessed with Defender! That awful boxy atari joystick with the button in the corner.... There was a video shop (remember renting VHS tapes?) near me that also did VCS cartridges and I used to pay 40p to rent a game for the week!

    Then... ZX81 (with only one game, an Asteroids clone that took half an hour to load from tape - but I learned the basics of programming from its manual, which was brilliant) -> Atari 800XL -> Amiga -> PC.

    I work in technology now making a living from skills I learned back on those 8 and 16 bit days.

    Since discovering Star Citizen I've 'invested' quite a lot of money in the game and have several large and small ships (e.g. Idris P, Polaris, Caterpillar, lots of fighters) but I won't be able to make the most of them without friends to play with, so that's what's lead me to TOG - to make friends, to have fun, but not to waste time in teenage drama that I see in so many orgs and guilds.

    I use my tech skills in SC too - I'm a python developer and my github - tidzo (Matt Saunders) * GitHub - has some relevant bits and pieces, like a python interface to the vJoy SDK.

    I'm also a moderator of the Star Citizen UK Facebook Group.

    Looking forward to joining TOG!
