I am 12 years old and I am for Sweden, sorry if my English is a bit “weak” sometimes. (Although my teachers tell me my English is pretty impressive speaking of my age.)
I’m also pretty interested in to making new friends here that also share the same interests as me, “Retro hardware and software ofc” my buddies at my school doesn’t really have any interest in computers at all. I actually think I’m the only one in my entire school that does. Often when I talk about (for example) my centos server or Windows XP or some random nerdy crap I could go on on hours but they wouldn’t really pick up anything.
My first ever operating system I ever layed my hands on was Windows XP, and I think I will never stop to finding Windows xp as interesting as I did when I first used it. Though the first os I actually owned was Windows 8.1 Home, and tbh, 8.1 is probably my favorite os other than XP, though that’s for an pother topic or if anyone asks me.
My dad works at Ericsson, a Swedish company that basically works on 5g lol. (He actually works at the HQ!)
Why I mention that is because it’s much easier for me to talk about tech stuff, since he’s like the only one that’s actually interested in it.
He went to computer science and I think he can 3 programming languages which is really impressive tbh, C, Basic and some other programming language which Ericsson developed. Though he hasn’t touched a programming language since the 90s. I’m interested in learning lua, and HTML (for simple website building) though I’m terrible at both. I do see confidence in me learning HTML and lua though!
I think I have more that I would like to share though I can’t think of any right now. I hope you all have a great day!
