Hi!

Post by DragutinMaric » Sat Jun 08, 2019 3:30 pm

Hello guys. I'm a fan of Michael MJD's and decided to make an account because tweeting to him is a bit limiting :)
Here's some info about me!

Bio:
I am a 19 year old Serbian-American tech geek who loves computers and all other electronics. As a kid, I was fascinated by electricity and everything that had to do with it. I would build pretend electrical installations in every place I lived, later incorporating computers in my designs. This creativity also spanned into the software area where I used to (and still sometimes do) make pretend operating systems. At age 6 I got Elenco Snap-Circuits, which let me unleash my electronics creativity (I still use it to this day for prototyping, even though I'm almost at college!). Throughout my life I've lived in Serbia, the USA (at one point right down the street from Apple's old HQ), South Korea and the UK. I currently live in Serbia but will be moving back to the US when I start electrical engineering college at New Mexico Tech in August.

Interests:

-Anything to do with electricity, computers, electrical engineering, black holes, overclocking, hacking, Android devices, clickwheel iPods, hybrid vehicles (especially Toyota Prius)
-High quality disaster movies, especially movies about airplane disasters both real and fictional.
-Modifying software (customizing old Android benchmarks, making unofficial versions Windows XP, etc..)
-DIY projects of all kind, preferably involving either computer hardware and/or high voltage
-Uploading my own creations, along with other rare stuff, to the Internet Archive (I have 300+ uploads)
-Custom operating systems for cellphones and tablets (especially the now defunct CyanogenMod)
-Rugged cellphones of any kind, especially CAT phones
-And much more...

Bragging rights:

-Creator of 3 unofficial XP versions (MemoriaOS, MemoriaOS MediaCenter Edition, Windows XP Millenium Nostalgia Edition)
-Contributed to Michael's channel by uploading several rare unofficial editions of XP to the Internet Archive and DM'ing links to him, two of which got Michael a ton of views (XP Ultimate and Longhorn Reloaded)
-OSForums is the ONLY forum where I use my real name
-Attempted to run WIndows 10 on a 486 emulator and got the boot manager working
-I brag a lot to Michael on Twitter about various tech things
-First and only person to attempt to run the infamous EHT Imaging software (the stuff used for the black hole image) on an Android device (not successful)
-And more...

Computer specs:

Celeron G1820 dual core 2.7GHz
8GB RAM
240GB Kingston A400 SSD (boot drive, some software and files)
480 GB A400 (bulk storage, virtual machines, video games)
GeForce GT-630 2GB "potato GPU"
MSI H81M-P33 motherboard
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
When in doubt, make an unofficial version of Windows XP!
When not in doubt, just mod some old Android benchmarks!
When between these states, archive and preserve software!
