Well for me it's a simple question. Without MSX i would not have been president of a serious game company Wink

Professional is more accurate than "serious"

For me the MSX contributed that I began to love programming stuff.
And now it is my job Smile

I was lucky to have an MSX in the house when I was 8 or so. Began programming simple stuff, drawing in Designer Plus.
And when MoonBlaster came out, I started banging on the keyboard to create awful tunes, but as soon as I knew how sheetmusic works, I spent hours on the machine, inputting song by song. Soon I could merely sniff at sheetmusic and I could immediately tell all the notes.
This caused me to write more own work (of which some is on my homepage, see MSX links > Music > Music for MoonSound, plug plug), and I got better at that.
Now I program in php, but still know character numbers, create images, buttons and small art in PSP and I know the array 1-2-4-8-16-32-64-128-256-512-1024-2048-4096 by heart. Thus binary, octal, hexadecimal is no problem to me at all.

If you stop at 4096 that's kinda lame Wink the MSX could handle up to 65536 remember...so you miss 8192, 16384, 32768 and 65536...and that's by heart as well Tongue
