Why, hello there. How on earth you managed to find this page, I do not know, nor am I fully aware why you would ever want to be here. But, I can guess that you want to know something more about me.
Well, I'm born in 1995, and my birthday is on the 20th of june. I'm a student, and can speak 4 languages:
excellent Icelandic, very good English, OK Danish and a little bit of French (I'm learning, learning is a bit slow, but with great patience comes great progress).
I started using GM when I was about 12, when I finally gave up on making crappy games on PowerPoint and went online to search for a "free game maker". Like most of you, I was directed at YoyoGames (back when they had the cool sandbox running perfectly and you could use the "play now" button. ahhhh, those where the times).
I slowly taught myself programming using only the manual and an incredible amount of patience and errors. I have a good sense of logic so the way programming works and the way the computer analyzes data was almost natural to me. After using the GM 7 and 8 for five years or so, I finally got myself a credit card and bought Game maker 8.1 last October. Finally, I had the power to do anything I wanted, and no longer had to battle the evils of lite. Then, soon after I also got GM:S and the HTML export during the web-collection special.
I started learning C# this term (starting from JAN.). Thanks to my former experience with GML; i quickly found that I could skip most of the chapters in the textbook, and needed only to learn the C# specifics of the text book. I completed each task after another and soon finished the entire course in little less then a month, while the rest of the class was still struggling with "Hello world." applications or programs that could convert C° to F°.
Now I'm taking 203 programming and will take both Finals as the term ends in May.
The theme for my profile and avatar are (obviously) vikings, and it has no secret meaning or personal agenda: I just like vikings, and because I am of Icelandic linage, where the most recorded vikings have lived, It felt natural to dig back into the cultural treasure that I possess here at home.
I haven't been as active as I like here from '08 to '11, but that has changed, and now, you must face the viking army as it storms the forums and helps people solve programming problems and count to 10.000.
