    Hey prashidi,

    Good idea for a post.

    My name is Scott. Currently I work for a large major airline in the Atlanta, GA area. I am an Aircraft Maintenance Tech. by day and a computer tinkerer by night.

    I play bass guitar for our church worship team and love it. I like alot of different music from big band to hard rock.

    I also agree with you about 3DS. I only started posting after I had read thru some of the forums and posts and this is probably the best site I have found.

    Keep up the GREAT work 3DS Gang !!

    I am 21 years old and live, study, work in Ghent, Belgium. I'm graduating in journalism this year after a 3-year study. Appart from school I am a way too busy man.

    I am starting a new company with a revolutionary concept of building and selling PC (sssshhhhtttt, it's still kind of secret). ToRN Systems will try to make a difference in system engineering, customershelp and webdesigne. It is all in an early stage compared to what it is supposed to be, but it is a very demanding job.

    I also work for PC Gameplay as a game-critic. It's not a big magazine, but the most important in Belgium and Netherland in my eyes. With 500000 pieces sold every month we are proud to be the only magazine around that can survive without any advertiser. I think this is an added value to the 'inter-subjectivity' of the magazine.

    Furhter on I try to check out 3DS and do some moderation, but with my timeschedule it is very hard. Nevertheless I do as much as I can and I hope I can be an added value to the site.

    I'm also a driver and have the oportunity to drive around in very nice, fast and expencive cars without buying them or pretending to buy them :).

    I try to help my father out in his company and do some administrative work there. Once in while I work as a steward on fairs (latest was steward at Audi on the car-fair in Brussels.)

    Last but not least I have a girlfriend which I concider as a full-time job also .

    I started with PC in the (recent) 386 era. I first opened the PC and wet my pants when putting in a gamecard at 12 years old. Since then I only bought bad PC's I had to fix until I build my own PC. That's how I got involved in PC assembly.

    Main interest are IT, science, ... (what you can find on /. :). My computer knowledge is basicly hardware oriented, but I tend to keep informed about the rest around it. I just love movies and only move my legs on true Drumm and Bass. Intelligent electronic music makes me think and I have my tought on about everything you can imagine.

    I am a 26 year old sales manager for a major computer manufacturer. I have a BA in Psychology. My screen name is derived from my most favorite car yet that I have owned, a 1997 Ford Mustang Cobra. I sold it in the spring of 2000 for a BMW. Nothing can replace a Mustang Cobra.

    I began my journey into computers with my Apple IIGS back in 1987. From there I upgraded to a Compuadd 386sx 16mhz which boasted a 20mb HD and a whole megabyte of memory. Armed with that beauty I headed into college with one of the fasted computers in my dorm. After spending 250.00 on an Intel external 14.4 modem I found the magical world of BBS. Castle Wolfenstein was my first FPS endeavor. With an 8 mb memory upgrade I could play Doom. Prodigy, Compuserve than AOL is what gave me my introduction to the internet. Here I am today 10 years later..

    re: about me

    My name is ALbert, and I am a 32 y/o university student in Newfoundland, Canada. I am recently married, and upon graduation am planning to move with my new bride to Nova Scotia. I am not much of a tecchie like most of you guys. I actually use my PC mostly for work, so I don't have a killer rig. I am drawn to this forum mainly because you get a friendly answer to your questions(most of the time).

    My name is David and I'm 14 years old. I haven't recieved a degree yet but, I'm a website designer, graphic designer, programmer, and scripter. I was born in Georgia but now I currently reside in Tampa, FL. Oh, and don't ask about my screename...it's a very long and complicated story and I don't feel like typing the whole thing up. (It's also something I don't like to discuss. It's personal.)

    I'm also trying to get a job on the internet and I'm not planning to work at a McDonalds. My website is www.xyz359.com. It's also not completed because I'm clueless on what to make it about. I'm gladly open to suggestions.

    Also, this is my father's PC but I mostly use it (it's basically mine). It's not the best, but, whenever I can convince him to upgrade, it's all good.

    Finally, I just love posting on this forum because all I get is nice people, nice and intelligent replies, it's active, and moderated greatly by the people who run it! I just love it.

    (I spent all day on it today.)

    Farewell!

    I'm Cian, 15. I've been using PC's since I was three, but my speciality is the Hardware side, which is why I use this place for my software problems. I live in Ireland. I support Brighton and Hove Albion F.C. and Jordan Formula One. I own two slowish PCs, maily because i buiklt them out of special offer parts. I am among the group of Microsoft haters who use Windows (XP) because of the lack of Software for other OS's, though I have BeOS and a Palm 3XE. Thats about it, really!

    I also spend a lot of time working on my sporting websites, links to WERE are in my signature.... D'OH... need to fix that

    I'm a 31 year old father, married with two children, living in Tampa, FL, and working as a Network Security Colsultant for a major telecommunications carrier. I have a BS in CIS, an MS in MIS, and CISSP certification.

    I first became interested in computers when my dad purchased a RadioShack TRS-80 Model 1 Level 2 in 1980 when I was 9. I quickly learned to program in Basic by troubleshooting, a.k.a. finding the typos in, game programs that I would type in from Softside Magazine each month. I purchased my first computer, a Commodore 64, in 1986.

    In my spare time, I like playing computer games, mountain biking, golfing, and playing acoustic guitar.

    I'm a 27 year old single guy living in Glasgow, Scotland. I live alone in my flat which I rent myself around the corner from my work.

    I finished my undergraduate degree in 1998 and started work shortly after doing system support for a Scottish University. Primarily today my duties involve desktop support for the staff members and students of the computing department which merged last year with the Electrical Engineering and Physics department to form a larger school.

    We administer a not too bad sized Windows 2000 domain with around 15 servers, some 500 workstations and users in their thousands.

    I specialise in staff support, workstation repair (hardware and software), Linux administration, and just about anything that the place requires that I do. Its a lot of work and a lot of good experience.

    Since the merger I have not enjoyed my job as much as I used to, despite the fact that I have a number of great collegues and friends at my work, many of whom are very skilled computer users, programmers, engineers and PhD research students.

    I am currently studying at night school as well as working full time, doing an academic course which has been created by the university from merging some of the better qualities of the CCNP and MSCE courses and pure computing systems modules. I am hoping after the completion of the course to additionally gain certifications in Cisco and Microsoft and then leave to become a computer consultant.

    Apart from computers I like to watch movies a lot, and am constantly downloading movies from the internet. I am a strong supporter of the free use of Peer to Peer file sharing on the Internet.

    I am not a developer but I do support the philosophy of the Open Source Movement. I believe that Capitalism has hijacked computing science to a certain degree and that its the profit motive which drives computing now not the progress motive.

    I also like to socialise after a long, hard week's work and have a nice cool beer with friends either at home or in the local pub. I also like to spend time visiting my Mum and my two little sisters who are 5 and 1 1/2.

    I found Techspot when it was 3dSpotlight. I think it was the result of a Google search I did which brought me to a thread, and I started to post on the forums there. About one year later I was made a moderator. I won one of the previous 3DS contests (prize was a motherboard.) I spend a little time here each day.
