Born as Theodorus on a Wednesday at the Rotterdam Hospital Ikazia.
Got my first "computer" from my parents! A real Commodore 64!
First written game
I wrote my first game on the Commodore 64. And what could it do? Well it was a simple questionaire game :-)
Sold my first computer
Bought a Amiga 500 with KCS Powerboard (to emulate DOS) and SCSI harddisk
Yes, computer- (smart) watches existed before the iWatch :-). Mine was a Casio Databank CD-40. I used it as a cheatsheet in the classroom. But it was hell to get the info into it!
First Intel PC
My first Intel 386, with 265KB Ram and 20MB harddisk. My friends told me I would never be able to get the harddrive full. Within 3 months I bought 2MB ram for 200 Gulden (120 dollars) and I started using stacker to zip double the size of my HDD.
First time New York
Worked for three months at Camp Herrlich in New York State! Gave very poor children from New York City the best time of their lives!
First mobile phone
My first mobile phone was a KPN Tango. My friends at the The Hague University told me I was crazy to have such a device!
First commercial app
I build for a big festival called Beachpop an ASP/Access application to register artists and to keep their whises and rules close at hand.
First commercial Website
I build the Beachpop festival an a ASP/Access website. BNN, main sponsor and television broadcasting organization, was very jealous about this site.
My first own domain was www.vandersluijs.nl and it cost me about 80 dollars a year!
I bought my first house. My sister told me I was crazy to spend so much money on a house. 1 year later my house was twice as much worth!
First digital organiser
I had a Casio BE 300, which was full with options... but it couldn't do anything really handy
I married with Daniëlle on 29th of August, to bad is was a very rainy day!
At the 10th of februari my first son "Jesse Indiana" was born. He was named after my biggest Movie hero... Indiana Jones :-)
