    I can assure you that I am serious, if I am fooling around; I try to make it obvious;). I am considered mature for my age(in comparison to others), would you like to have a guess, or shall I just tell you?

    Let me see ... mmm ... how does 12 yrs old sound? :D

    OK, I give up, but you can give me a clue, if you'd rather not say.

    I take it that you've never heard of the Clangers then?

    PS: One of the good things about forums is that people will take you seriously regardless of your age (which nobody need really know). But it also means that sometimes others will make assumptions about you, which you might not appeciate.;)

    Nope, I am 14. I realize that I am very young in comparison to the majority of the members here at TS. The reason I don't give out my age is because people tend to ignore my comments and advice however good or bad it may be. Also I won't be taken seriously as you quite rightly put it. You are right in assuming that I haven't heard of the Clangers, I will do some research :grinthumb.

    You're one lucky kid then - going by the PC Spec in your profile.:D

    Besides, when posting on forums its quality of information that counts, and people WILL take you seriously if your posts are useful. Just be aware that most users aren't sure of who they are talking to so don't be put off by sometimes inappropriate comments. I'm sure there are some 'adults' here that come over as less mature than yourself [me for instance :D].

    So what do you plan on doing career wise when you finish your education?
    Working with computers maybe?
    If so then you're certainly of to a good start.:)

    Oh yeah, and take a look at that clanger site, it sure was a funny tv series ...:D :D :D

    :haha::haha: Man, those Clangers are something else!! Surprisingly, that series seems to have a quite complicated story line! Yes, I do consider myself very fortunate to have such a speedy computer at my age; although, you can see my OLD computer, now that thing was not fun to work with. Nevertheless, I managed to get it working, (just a few sturdy kicks on the side panel) and is still working to this day with only a few minor dents in the case:D . For a future job I could see myself working in graphics as I am so interested in the topic, but I realize the chances of getting into a good company such as NVIDIA or ATi are practically a million to one; so if that dream fails, any hardware or software profession should suit me nicely:) .

    I was still running something slower than that less than 2 yrs ago (K6-266).:D
    Having an 'old' PC around is pretty handy if you have some of the old classic DOS games to play when you're feeling a little nostalgic. Many of these just won't run on modern hardware because its too fast - maybe oneday someone will write a PC emulator that is easy to configure and that actually works.:eek:

    PS: Now I understand why you have the nVidia logo on your posts.:D

    I agree, playing older games can be fun, I recall my brother using an emulation program with over a thousand games from the Snes console or something like that. I'm not very familiar with these old consoles or whatever Snes was ;).

    Nic> There are quite a few good DOS emulators out there... They're just very hard to find... :(

    PcFormat (UK) had one on their coverdisc of the march edition...
