When I originally entered the scene I was a common leach, grabbing games as fast as I could off of boards. Then one night I was hit by a car while on my bike, and I was left at home unable to walk for a month. With nothing to do, I taught myself some rudimentary ML skills with the built in monitor of my EPYX Fastload cartridge.
As time went on I found out about "demos". I was highly motivated after seeing a lot of Venom demos, and to this day one of my favorite demos is Channel Zero; not because of code quality, but because it is what finally pushed me to learn to demo code. I met a guy on some local boards by the name of Angelripper, and he (Dan) started to teach me how to code around the IRQ, teaching me the same way that another guy (Sting) taught him.
Eventually I started to get to the point where I could be of use to the scene, and I changed my handle to Cyberad. The handle is actually supposed to be "Cyber Rad" from a comic book at the time, published by NOW comics I believe (same co. who originally put out the Terminator comics before Dark Horse took over). I misspelt the handle on a few boards with only one R, but it stuck as it was.
After I left the scene I changed my handle again to tendim (note all lowercase!). Nowadays I use my tendim handle for anything car related (I am a serious addict to drifting and the 240sx scene here in North America; other parts of the world: 200sx, Silvia, 180sx, etc.) such as FreshAlloy.com and other car forums, but Cyberad for anything Commodore related.
As a side note, any "open" software I put out (e.g., utils) is usually released under my first name, but always as part of RPG.
Involved since '88 in the scene, currently inactive.
I was the telemetry systems manager for the University of Toronto Blue Sky Solar project, which races solar cars.
I've also got a degree in Photography (BFA) from Ryerson Polytechnic in Toronto, and my MBA from Rotman University in Toronto.
