About Me (eric81766)

Hi, I’m Eric.

I was born on August 17, 1966 (hence the 81766). Henry Rollins used to use http://21361.com as his website, and I thought it was so cool that I took 81766.com.

My first computer was a TRS-80 with 16K and Level II BASIC. I was so far beyond Level I. Some highlights from that TRS-80 era:

Text Adventure Game

Bad Asteroids Clone

Space Invaders Clone

Invasion Force

CLOAD magazine

Writing my own games.

Arcade Machines of note

Death Race 2000, the game with physical cars on a scrolling tube background, pinball, asteroids, asteroids deluxe, scramble, star castle, Tail Gunner 2, Sea Wolf, That anti-aircraft game

My second computer Atari 800


Star Raider – the space game

Ali Baba


Then I went to RPI.

Then I was looking for a job in Pizza Delivery, but just below it was an ad for Programmers Wanted.


and now

Sharing is caring 81766 style!
