MODDB Easter Egg #1

Hi. I started programming computers in 1985. 1000 points to anyone who ever owned a Timex/Sinclair 1000. Anyway, skipping ahead to the Half-Life years...

Mapping - this is where it all starts for most people, right? Anyone remember the free copy of worldcraft 1.3 that came with the original Half-Life CD? :) ... or was it 1.6 hmm... anyway I started mapping for Team Fortress Classic(1999). Then I got all ambitious and started a mod called Black Ops, another romp through Black Mesa. Over time the name changed to Critical Mass, and the Black Mesa thing was dropped in favor of a whole new story, not Half-Life related at all. I got into modeling a little, bought a copy of Milkshape. I learned some C++, bought Visual Studio 6, and had some significant changes finished. Picked up Terragen ability for custom skies along the way.
During these Goldsource years I lost all my work on the mod, twice, so I just racked it up as experience gained. Half-Life 2 came out, so I finished up the work in progress TFC map I was working on and made the switch. Eventually started Critical Mass back up, for the Source engine this time.

Since then I have been associated with a variety of Source mods:
