Guess what? Yes, I’ve been tagged

 I’ve been tagged by Pablo, so here goes five things about me that most people don’t know:

1) I was born in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Like Tom, I was born in the same hospital were my now-wife Catalina was born but as she was born almost a year before me, so she wasn’t there (luckily) when I left the hospital

2) My first computer was a Texas Instruments TI 99 4/A. And after typing huge program listing from a TI gaming book and getting very boring games I decided to start writing my own boring games. A couple of years after that, I got my hands on a Sinclair Spectrum (in almost all its flavors from 48k to 128k), and I started to write not-that-boring games. I still remember when we (two mates from school and I) coded our first “Pacman-like” game, it was a huge success for us when we’re able to make solid walls by ‘hiding’ # characters (using a very advanced technique of selecting the same fore/back colors…)  and then checking for them. After that, a heavy Sanyo PC XT with mono video card replaced the Spectrum, and we started disassembling the game Leisure Suit Larry with Fernando in order to cheat the monies counter to advance the Casino scene.

3) I like sports; I did play soccer, tennis, and paddle for some time. I even got to practice Kung Fu for almost 2+ years. Right now, I’m into tennis and swimming.

4) I haven’t work before as an employee (I was always a freelancer) until I co-funded my own company Clarius Consulting with Daniel. I’m now legally a Clarius employee since almost 3 years now.

5) I’m learning to cook… and incredible enough, against all odds, I’m making progress!!

And here goes five tags to other people:

Fernando, Juan Carlos, Jose, Adrian and Mauro.
