See him, there? That's me, that is. Although the hair is now a lot shorter.

Or, as roomproject would have it:

So, er, yeah. What's to tell? I'm 23, a full time web developer (and damn good at it if I do say so myself!), and I enjoy pretending I'm good at Photoshopping.

I'm the guy who wrote the original I'm Feeling Spendy, which is probably the only way I'll ever be plugged on b3ta as I doubt I'll ever reach the FP with a piccy, no.

Others have since developed Spendy's of their own but until corrected I'm going to assume I got there first. It's for the mighty board to judge who did it best. I hope they pick me!

Just me.....
.....my Amiga 1200, iBrowse (and later AWeb and Voyager) and a 33.6k modem paying monthly AND by the minute. Demon, or U-Net or someone. It probably took me about a week to try and watch porn (and that was just loading the site), only to discover most movie formats used for the ten second teasers wouldn't work on my old Commodore. Animated GIFs at 1fps that took 10 minutes to download for the win.

Must've been a good 15, 16 years ago now.

First concrete memory? The blood curdling scream from my mother when the £300 phone bill turned up and she briefly considered killing her only child.

» Best and worst TV ads

A chance to see if anyone else remembers this one....
When listening to Block Buster by The Sweet at work the other day when I asked my colleagues if any of them remembered an advert for the Dustbuster by Black and Decker that rewrote some of the lyrics.

"The kids are out,
They're running about,
Grab a Dustbuster,
Wipe that mess out!

Did she hear someone say,
Clean it out the way,
With Dustbuster!"

Cue blank looks, vacant stares and a complete inability from anyone there to remember the ad in question. YouTube searches and lyric searches have proven fruitless and I am in fact scared that I made the whole thing up on the spot in some sort of idiot savant moment of advertising genius.

Can someone else please tell me they remember this ad, so I don't have to feel like I've gone mad / brilliant any longer?
