Video: GIGA Editors Introduce Themselves: 7 Questions For Retro Enthusiast Thomas
2023 Author: Sheila Hailey | [email protected]. Last modified: 2023-08-25 04:29
Sometimes I would like to know that. The one who wants to help everyone with their technical problems. The one who lives every day in his own retro bubble. And the one who, with his useless knowledge of children's series and science fiction from the 80s, 90s and the best of today, would have liked to go to “Wetten, dass..?”.
I'm Thomas, born in 1989. As a child, I reached into a running power supply unit, which caused a surge of electricity to throw me at the opposite wall of the room. Since that day, I've had the superpower to persuade people not to do such stupid things themselves, and also the ability to make nonsensical superhero background stories.
2. How long have you been at GIGA and what do you do at GIGA?
I have been with GIGA since March 2016 and, as evidence A (many articles) successfully demonstrated: I write texts!
3. What is your area of expertise at GIGA?
It gets more complicated here. I was hired to write howtos, easy-to-understand instructions and general explanatory articles on all sorts of software and hardware topics. Somehow I kept the almost forgotten film and series area of GIGA alive and at the same time let my fascination for gaming, pop culture and retro stuff flow in here and there, so that I am now simply an expert in the field of being an expert am. I believe.

4. What is your favorite series?
I often have little to do with stories about the American military. I can't watch a Roland Emmerich film without constantly rolling my eyes. It is all the more astonishing that Jonathan Glassner and Brad Wright managed to pick me up completely with "Stargate SG-1".
"Stargate SG-1" does not take itself too seriously, but it always sets high quality standards for itself and manages what hardly any other team-based series can do: all main characters are personable and remain with theirs throughout the series Role understandable and logical, although they represent very different values and have character traits.
In addition, almost every episode consists of the heavy tightrope act with the right balance between action, fascination and humor (or cheesyness) with flying colors. Even after watching the hundredth time, I still have a fever and can laugh at almost every joke - even if I know how it ends and the punch line can already speak. Perhaps the harshest criticism that can be elicited from me about "Stargate SG-1" is that the replicators start to get annoying at some point.
In this sense: "Kree!"

5. What is your favorite console?
CD player? Need i hr now ni ch t more! Spie l console? Can i hr on it in the future v e rzichten! Video player? Can also go. Slide projector? It's yesterday's snow. Because of the "Philips CDi" Players can not only your music CDs a b spi e len, but a lso Video Game l e and Spezia l program e, K in o movies u n d Mu s ikvide o s and even your great l aubs-slides - Philips CDi, vi e r i none. This is awesome !
6. What was your biggest bad buy?
Most likely the Philips CDi …
The truth lies (as so often) between the lines.
7. Which current technology arouses your curiosity the most?
Paradoxically, I find the new technology that is developed for outdated or obsolete hardware or systems exciting. Be the Bluetooth controller for the Super Nintendo, SD card readers for the C64, complete reconstructions or reinterpretations of old motherboards, RAM modules, entire consoles or certain spare parts. Also the whole emulation scene, which tries again and again to save the past, to save it and to bring it to new systems as good as possible.
It is always astonishing what a niche of technology enthusiasts accomplish for tricks: This enables everyone to experience our technical past for themselves, to bring old hardware back into our time or at least to teach it new tricks. I think everyone who sat on an Amiga 500 in the late 80s, for example, and now stumbles across a YouTube video where someone uses exactly this old home computer to "surf the Internet" will be able to understand this fascination.
