He plays OSR. I'm pretty sure he's in his 80s, but he used to play back in 2005/6/7 and was in the hundreds.

He always talks to me about trying to get his cooking up with 40k lobsters so he can cook some other high-level item without burning it.

He no longer plays WoW but was a level 80 dwarf hunter when he quit, which was right before Cataclysm. I was horde and we'd always run into each other in the crossroads while he was raiding. He kicked the shit out of me each and every time. Fucking snake traps.

I'm a pisspoor college student and a $900 investment for a birthday gift was a lot of money within itself. The card runs all his games on ultra at 1080p so it's good. Down the road I'll get him something nicer but for now it was all I could afford.

I'm completely self-taught about computers. I also happen to have a reasonably healthy relationship with my father. My parents divorced and he raised me. He seriously knows nothing about computers, and has only had a very pessimistic attitude towards computers and internet (crap, he was right: the government really uses them to spy on people). Also, though he's in his 60s, he is very healthy for his age. He will definately live a long time.

My mother's computer skills, though she was computer literate, were not particularly impressive. She could repair and set up computers, but never became much of a programmer. She tells me she knew some fortran and basic, but I don't know if I should even assume she really knew that much. She never did anything of repute that I have heard of. She also pretty much ignored my wishes when I was little, and was moderately abusive because she was mentally unstable and on drugs when I was a kid. I never lived with her for very long because in response to the hell my life was living with her, I became a little demon in hell. When I went to go live with my dad, my dad treated me with respect, so I always respected him.

I don't hate my mom, but, she's mostly been absent from my life, and she hadn't been much of a mother to me.

I remember Dad buying a top of the line computer for Christmas 1998, a Gateway with such amazing features as a CD burner and a 3D accelerator, and I was in the office with him on December 26th reading the quick start guide and we were setting it all up together, then after we're done he introduces me to the Internet the first time.

Two years later, he runs off with a stripper from Indiana, and I get 8 years of custody battles and the Gateway. I keep it running through years of dead hard drives and power supplies in increasingly tiny apartments. When I finally save up for a new computer in 2005, I end up building it with Dad watching and then a week later stripper stepmom takes it away and puts it in a storage unit for 6 months to "teach me a lesson".

Now he lives in a shitty little town with strippermom, four dogs and an iguana, does IT for a community college and is constantly broke because he pays for her plastic surgery.

Thanks for making me what I am, Dad.

My dad is the one who forced me to quit CS to run his business. Before he could finish training me, he left and abandoned me in the middle of nowhere.

They're both still alive. Not even mad at my mom for not being a good mother. Kind of a big shrug there. I got used to being a latchkey kid when I was in elementary school..

>my dad had to change shifts at work because the teachers disciplined me when the other kids broke the rules and pretended I causes all the problems at school
>got punished for this at first, but then finally managed to explain to him what exactly really happened at school, so my dad stopped reinforcing the teachers' discipline, and talked to them about it, but it didn't change theoior behavior
>the teachers had to be bitches about everything, perhaps they were actually discriminating against my dad (single working class dad, 'nam veteran, a few things for the type of women who were elementary school teachersback then to get all reactionary over)
>because of how often I got into trouble at school, my father eventually had to change shifts at work, and so I was a latchkey kid for most of my childhoos

I just realized that I barely had parents. It never bothered me much as a kid. I just hope everyone realizes how lucky they are to have actually had a childhood.

My father sells computers, and has a literal fuckton of old computer shit. He's actually not as tech savy as you'd think, though. He knows what the individual parts are and what they do, and how to put together a computer, but don't expect him to be able to install drivers and shit. Guess he never bothered to learn.

Still, we have built more computers together than you can imagine.

By the time I might have wanted to, the looks were gone and I had had to actually live with her less than stunning personality. So no.

Yeah, at least it was mostly things going wrong that my childhood was screwed up, and though my parents haven't been able to do much for me, they do care about me. My siblings aren't any better off or anything. And my life seems to be one of those that starts bad but doesn't continue to be as it was at first, and doesn't get any worse than how it was at first.

It seems your father is able to help you more now that you're an adult than he could when you were a child, and can teach you things he knows (which is what parents do).
