Hi! The name's McKensy - Olfert McKensy.
I'm a Therian (There.com) but when that closed down in 2010 (although in the progress of opening again) I started a quest to find a new virtual home. That quest lead me to Real Life Plus that looked to be the most likely choice as none of the other thousands of virtual worlds I have tested met my expectations, satisfaction or taste.
In There.com my avatar name is McKensy and that name is now also my RLP avatar name. Until the opening/possibility to create my personal avatar I will be using my Therian avatar image.
In my longterm membership of There.com I gained a lot of trust and knowledge of the whole system and had so much joy and fun, that I wanted to give something back to the community. So I created a fan site with all kinds of information, tips and tricks about There.com that I called ThereInfo.com.
By now I already feel so "connected" with Real Life Plus that I have decided to create another informational fan site for it in the hope that I will be able to give something back to the community.
I don't plan to set up another forum for members as I feel and think the present forum on the Real Life Plus main site is fully adequate. But maybe in the future, when things get "hot" around RLP I might change my mind.
It is my intention to collect various information about and tips and tricks for Real Life Plus. Also I will try to collect links for every article and fan site about Real Life Plus I can find.
Please notice: It seems there has previously been another fan site called RLP Info (still up). That site is now known as the RLP Daily fan site. Because of the possible misconception that my site is "the original RLP Info site" I might change my fan site name.
I've been working with computers for more than 30 years.
My first "computer" to call my own was a Philips VideoPac G7000 - one of those cartridge game consoles. I used all my pocket money to buy game cartridges and had a lot of fun playing with it. I also got my hands on a programming cartridge with a very simple BASIC and had my first simple experience of "coding" at the age of 10.
Then followed the coolest computer of all time - the Commodore C64 - also known as the "breadbox". It quickly won my heart because of its very broad versatility and ease of use. I spent a lot of time playing games on it, but soon became bored so I started learning to program it in BASIC quickly followed by assembler and even learned to touch-type with all 10 fingers. In fact I was "bitten" and "infected" so badly with bits and bytes from it that I've been "cursed" ever since. LOL
After primary school I went a couple of years on business school, where I finally got convinced that my vocation was computers, and studied another 3 years on the subject. During that time I bought my first MS-DOS computer, the Commodore PC10-III with a 30MB harddrive (very cool at that time :) - and it had a Turbo botton!
The rest of the list of computers in my life is too long and boring to mention.
Professionally I'm a teacher on a danish boarding school for adults, teaching mostly tech stuff such as internet in general, advanced internet, internet search, homepage design and creation, digital photography, image manipulation, desktop publishing (mostly Adobe). I am also part of the computer maintenance staff.
In my sparetime I teach and practise the ancient Korean martial art Taekwondo (2nd Dan black belt) and self-defence with a combination of Taekwondo and Judo.
I like spending time outside in the open, walking and watching the countryside, listening to and taking pictures of the beautifull (and sometimes not so beautifull - LOL) scenery. Also enjoy the stars at night.
I see myself as an average Dane at an average height and with an average weight. LOL. My Therian avatar looked pretty much like me I think - maybe except for the clothes ;)
