    alright, I shall introduce myself since I plan on becoming active on here. I'm a 23 year old female college student, working on my second associate degree, network specialist degree this time around. My first AS degree is in computer programming. I know Visual Basic (doesn't everyone?), Java, some C++, am learning C#. I'm TRYING to learn Linux, trying because my computer is very stubborn anymore. I'm origianally from Kentucky, now in Wisconsin, moved here to be with my boyfriend who i met online about 6 years ago. I'm having a very difficult time finding a worthwhile job (no one wants to hire someone with no real world experience), so i'm currently working at Sam's Club and looking for an internship for next semester (same problem as noted above). I build and work on computers in my spare time (we have 4 computers in this apartment) or else work on my website (plan on doing a complete overhaul on it soon). My other real interest is Nascar. I also like star trek, but am not as obsessed with it as i was when i was younger (no learning Klingon is not an obsession as my boyfriend tries to claim). Anyway, thats about it for me. That is who I am.

    I am a 13 (DOB = 18/03/90) year old kid from Jersey, UK.

    I play about with any comps and languages that i can get my hands on (exept perl , especially PHP! )
    I currently do loads of PHP, SQL, JavaScript, XML and HTML (wow!), and i started it all with Basic
    I play a bit with Pascal, ASP.net, and some other things...
    I am learning C++ (haarrrddd )

    My parents are completely technology illiterate. My dad cant work a remote control, i set up all the TVs and Computers in the house. My uncle got a computer in '95 and i picked it up easy (i was 5!) i wanted to go and play on the computer every time i was in his house.

    I had to wait till i was 9 before getting a computer. My parents didnt know what to pick and got a time computer. It froze at least 11 times the first day, and 15 every further day. 3 years on from then, my comp finally started dying. It still works, but on my 13th birthday i got a brand new mesh computer. Really good for me! - I would have made my own, but my parents dont trust me to. Just this christmas, i got a laptop (also mesh)! Just as powerful as my desktop computer - quite noisy tho.

    My website is http://www.cwin.redirectme.net/ and i programmed it all except my forums (i am in the middle of reprogramming it all, thats why not much does anything and my forums are a different theme!)

    Other comp things i like are: Vid editing, Music editing, Digital Photography, Music creation (Midi keyb + cubase sx), the net!!, Macromedia Flash stuff, DVD authoring.... and more.

    Ummmmm, i do spend all my time on the computer except school. Even eating!

    There is a bit of a guy behind the geek too, i do like shooting stuff and fighting (proper fighting - martial arts and stuff) ... got about 3 friends..

    My comps are:

    ::::::Newer Desktop::::: 1200
    Sharp 17" LCD @ 1280x1024
    2.8GHz Pentium 4 533mhz FSB
    512mb PC2700 RAM
    Asus P4G8X Delux
    ATi Radeon 9700
    SB Audigy 2
    120gb Maxtor 7200rpm HDD
    Sony DVD-/+RW Read:32x R/RW:24x DVD:16x DVD-r/w:4x
    Creative InSpire 5.1 speakers

    *Had a lil bit of cheese with it in the past

    ::::::Laptop::::::: 999
    15" Monitor @ 1400x1050
    2.8GHz HT P4 800MHz FSB
    256 PC2700 RAM
    SiS Motherboard (SiS648FX chipset)
    AC '97 5.1 audio
    40gb HDD
    CD 32x R/RW 24x DVD 16x
    ATi Radeon Mobility M10 (9600)
    ** Very hot and noisy, i tend to underclock it to 2.1ghz for normal use
    Not one bug or problem yet.. not one freeze**
    ::::::Old Desktop::::::: 1400
    500MHz AMD K6-2 (seems dodgey)
    128mb RAM (bad)
    MSI MS-5191
    - onboard ATi Rage gfx
    - onboard SB 64v sound
    20gb Maxtor 5100rpm HDD (bad)
    Broken network adaptor
    Broken CD-RW
    Broken DVD
    *Stuff started breaking and failing before i even switched it on
    A note inside says it didnt pass its system tests and therefor shouldnt have been sold*

    Look which one cost the most!
    The lappy and newer desktop are linked on a 1gbps cabled network until i cough up 100 to get wireless adaptors for them both.

    MSN - microcamers@hotmail.com

    heh you have mesh computer like me... mine is about 2.5 years old though and it was before I really got into building them...

    I also had a mesh laptop but had so many problems with it's motherboard (long story, but I had about 3 replacements sent in total that were all messed) so I returned it and got a different one.

    For those not "in the know", MESH is apparently a brand of computers, i.e. Dell, Gateway....

    actually, mesh computers are pretty good. can't remember the specs of mine as it is not my main pc anymore but they don't 'make' any of their own parts except the case, even the mouse/keyboard didn't have stickers on it...

    but it had like WD HDDs, Athlon proc, mitshubishi (sp?) monitor, MS mouse/kb, toshiba cd-rw, etc...

    lasted me a good long time until i got the balls to make my own

    As the typical comp buyer would get swayed into buying things that they dont need would say... "It's even got a cool lock on the case"
