Ragnaroki was my first system. One day I received a prepaid Visa in the mail, and I figured it was the perfect time to buy my own computer. I was sick and tired of having to rely on other people to scan my art (most of which was never scanned or returned) and using library computers to color it. I had to bypass the library's security system to do any CGing, to boot! The instant I activated my credit card, I called Damark International and ordered the $800 300Mhz system they had for sale. No monitor, and it was the cheapest system they had for sale. Flash forward to August 199X (?). She arrived via UPS right before I had to go to work, so I hurriedly assembled her and installed windows. Using a borrowed monitor, I gave her a test run that night. Excellent. Soon after, I bought my own monitor and scanner (both of which I still have), and started drawing up a storm. I couldn't afford a CD burner at the time, so that would have to wait.
