When I was in school, we really didn't have computers. Does being on first name bases with the principle count? I guess I am old, no wait, experienced....

    You can kinda say I had a reputation in school (still have, as I'm still in school), I was a bit know as the computer freak (both for god and worse :/ ). But I kinda had good use of it, like I was assigned to the task of making a decent homepage for our school, long time ago, now they've put flash on it.
    And now I'm more or less one of the favourite computer studens, in a project work I'm going to be a bit of boss of the technical part of it (where did my modesty go? :P )

    devpon, hehe depens on what country you are in (here in sweden we usually address eachother by our firstnames, we even say "du" (second person, singular "you") to each otehr here ).

    kriss, 'bitmaster', I haven't head that, but I remembered that when I told a classmate at school that I know some opcoding/hexcodeing/bitbending(10010000 <=> nop/xchg (e)ax,(e)ax <=> "no op") he looked kinda funny at me (you know the look "eh? are you a stupid or a mad scientist?")

    A master is nothing more than a student who knows something of which he can teach to other students.

    i have no reputation at school but this brings me to a thought


    if its a secret spy satelite , and they announce that on tv, its not a spy satelite anymore right?


    thats why i laugh when guys talk about hacking at school.





    i program on my off time and own a linux comp but dont bring that into school

    in high school i didn't really do much with computers. i didn't start messing around with computers 'till i started college. now i would consider myself quite literate in computer, but back in high school i was quite illiterate. i have always been a science geek though. this is probably why i am studying physics instead of computer sci. in college.

    In school, I was the math nerd, the sience geek, the history buff and the loner.
    I was in my 30's and already driving trucks for 6 years before I bought my first computer.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    i could prob do that as well.

    few weeks ago the head of IT was trying to get a mandrake 7 machine on the winXP network, i watched over his shoulder. he didn't even touch linuxconf so after he had finished getting nowhere. i took his place shot straight into linuxconf and found the network config section. i won't tell him though, just let him suffer hahaha
