Behind The Scenes At TopSailDigital
Hello, this is Phil Mackie, founder of TopSailDigital.
My obsession with the internet began in the early ’90s when my father brought home his first home computer.
I can’t remember if it was a Tandy – but the images on the Yellow on Black screen were from the internet. I didn’t understand it at the moment but the internet was going to change all of our lives as broadband internet rolled out into everyone’s homes.
Thus the age of the Internet in the US began. A few years later, my father was recycling some old desktops from work.
I was 15 at the time and I disassembled the PC in my bedroom, curious how the device worked. was dismayed when it wouldn’t start (whoops!). And I had to rebuild the whole thing piece by piece until it started correctly. I have been building and working on my own computers since.
