How many computer geeks are there here???



Just curious, how many computer people on Max are there. I think it's safe to assume there are a lot.

What are computers to you, a job, or a hobby?? Also, if you're in school for IT, for what and where??

At least this way we can network our skills if one of us needs someone else to do a job or what not.

By the way, I'm currently at Georgian College in the Network Specialist/Routing Technology program.

on the computer all day. way too much. and not productive at all =(
when i was younger, i used to think my future would be computer related, i messed around with HTML and flash (sucked with flash), but never got into programming. i suck with hardware/network aspect of the computer.

i'm very computer literate, i used to be a mIRC/warez freak, but now i just use it for music, chatting, and cs:source =)
