Some of you may already know I have been working on a contract with the marketing team at Snapper. They have just posted a blog entry with a link to a PDF talking about our experience together and how I got Geekzone running. 

Hit the link to Snapper Profile: Mauricio Freitas if you want to find out more.

Not sure... Can't replace one I've been using for more than ten years now, can we?

freitasm: Where does it say my age??? But yes...




In the Snapper profile PDF


“And it all started with a TRS-80 from Radio Shack,” says the 50-year-old. “I took one look and thought ‘that’s incredible’.”

I started much older than you and it has always remained just a hobby, but I was moved in exactly the same way when my father first demonstrated his TRS-80 to me. That brings back many special memories. All thumbs up.
