Same also for those who survived Symposium '96, as well as MS2k2 !!!!

Felice, surely my job to reference Symp 96 in every conversation about olden times on the demoscene? :-)

I still recall the time where demogroups had a need for the so-called "swappers" !

what Zplex said :) .. looks like we have a demographic change in the scene, seems we old sceners have to code till the age of 70 to keep the scene alive, no early retirement ..

born 78, entered scene in 91 (by joining a then wellknown group, but had been doing unreleased stuff on my own for years already).
I can't remember. That is how old i am.

The first ever Star Wars movie is only couple of days older than I am.

Well... Born 1970, first C64 "prod" in 1986 (gone from the face of the earth now, thankfully...). First Amiga prod early 1989. Kept active until around 1994, then took a long break until last year.

I am not _that_ old but my body starts to decay. Well, that's the circle of life. Wrote my first scrolly on a Commodore 64 back in 1987.

yep, wrote a special scroller in basic once on c=64, must have been around 1985, when i was 7.
It consisted of letters made out of blocks (some PETScii), spanning 8 block height and the full x without borders, softscrolling though. I really exactly remember how it looked, but sadly i don´t have the file anymore, i´d pay a lot if i ever could get it back somehow! ;)
back in 1987 I got my first computer, an Atari 800 xl and I typed out my first gfx effect - a line pattern - from this book

Doesn't work on my outdated PC.

Video is so so.

born in 1975, fall in the demoscene when I watched Enigma by Phenomena running on a demo Amiga in a computer store (the demo is looping, so I watched it during one hour while my father was occupied elsewhere buying some stuff).
first demoparty in 1993 (the first Saturne Party in France), I joined my first group by sending a letter to ask to join with a disk full of personal work :D

I'm a 45yo Atari ST demo maker. I attended Transbeauce 2 and ICC2, got a couple of screens released with my pals in Naos; nothing fancy. I've always been a technician rather than an artist :P

I am 48 now, and first heard of demoscene in '89. As I always loved low-level and graphics programming, the quality of the demos that I saw immediately blew my mind. Wish I could have more time to get involved, but daily life does not permit -- at least not yet. Also most big parties still won't accept remote submissions, which is a bit discouraging.

Still alive, and old enough to remember first Amiga demos with color cycling as main effect :)
