I'm Warren, 33, from Canada. I've been a computer programmer for 15+ years now and work for a company that makes websites and mobile apps. I've been a Space Quest fan since I was 9 or 10 years old and was first introduced to Sierra games at a friends house who showed me PQ1 on his family PC. Once my dad upgraded our old VIC 20 to a used IBM PS/2 Model 30 (with an 8MHz 8086 processor and MCGA graphics no less!), I couldn't get enough of these games. Overcoming the technical limitations of that old PS/2 in order to play these games is really what got me into computers in the first place. Talk about sticking a square peg in a round hole, I used to take my newest Sierra game to a friends house because they had a high density disk drive, ARJ it into multiple volumes on low density disks, then copy and unARJ them onto my sweet 20MB hard drive (read: Max ~10MB game). Thank god that thing had 640K of RAM. (For those of you in your 20's this probably sounds like a 'When I was your age, I walked uphill both ways!' story.)
Over the years I've lurked around the SQ corners of the web and had a couple brief interactions with the community. I've also been fortunate to be one of the people chosen to help sort out some of the audio/video difficulties with the SpaceVenture podcasts and commentaries.
Anyway, I figured it's better late than never to stop lurking and step out of the shadows. What a great time to be an adventure game fan.
