A little here...well, I'm married and I have a three-year-old daughter. I like to read and debate, and I'm a big rock collector. I do freelance artwork, painting murals in houses, and I'm trying to get back into school to upgrade my degrees.

hi my name is Elie I am 16, I bought this laptop, it is an old IBM 365 xd, i really just realized how I really like working with computers so I got it as a starter to fix it up. I basically know NOTHING about it compared to most people on this site but I am tryng to learn. the problem with this laptops is It has been reformatted, it does not have an external floppy but it does have an internal cd-rom, the problem is that I cannot get it to boot right from the cd rom( I dont know how to), I went to the BIOS to see if I could change the boot sequence but the CD rom is not in there. so I'm stuck, if you could help me or indicate someone who can I would REALLY apreciate it. thank you SOOO MUCH. Elie


Name: Cenny Wenner
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Occupation: 2nd year Student of theoretic physics and philosophy, Lund university, Sweden
Hobbies: General creation, especially theoretics. Discussing physics and philosophy, Programming and CIS, AI in particular, Go (asian board game), anime at times.
Proficient in c++, ruby, vb, php, asm86 and 16x74 (html, javas, css, et.c.). Also knows or has known asp, lisp, java, and likely several I have forgotten the name of by now. Been programming as a hobby for the past 7 to 9 years.
Personality traits: Usualy highly focused on the few tasks at hand and rather ignorant of all other activitiy. Increadibly analytical and logical. Attempts to solve various scientific problems during spare time and hasn't "been out" for the past 1.5 years.

I've attended several forums focusing on several different subjects in the past few years but none devoting itself specifically to Programming and CIS. Scavaging the net, this was one of the few which featured a grand userbase, decently advanced (for one, even having a CIS thread rather than simply the programming languages) and not overrun by ads, if I leave, that's the reason. I hope to learn and carry the ability to discus various topics and meet interesting people here, greetings!

My name is Mike. I am a Junior at Binghamton University, majoring in Computer Science.

I am new to this place. It looks like it is packed with geeks, and nerds (such as myself).

I know programming, web development, network, OSs, Computer Architecture (my favorite), and various scientific subjects in the area of computer science. So if anyone needs help, feel free to ask. You can try to help me, but I've been told that I am a hopeless geek, and that its simply too late for me (at least thats what the doctor said)!

I am looking forward to talking with you.

Hello. I had a program I needed help with, and my usual forum for asking programming questions was caput, so I googled a programming forum site and ended up here. I might actively post, I might lurk.

Um my favorite tv shows are the shield, nip tuck, and rescue me.

Hi all,
I'm Josh. I just joined up here. At 33, it looks like I am a bit older than some here, but that is ok. I started out doing everything for my site myself, but am now resigned to the fact that I can't be an expert in anything. I'm hoping to learn a few things, or find some folks that might be able to help me out. I'm in CA, have pretty ecclectic tastes in everything. Anything else anyone wants to know, just ask.
