    Stop Making Me Look Bad

    There are many of us out there, but some of them make the good ones like myself look incredibly stupid. Seriously, stop acting as if you know something when you don't. Windows Vista is NOT a good operating system. Linux IS and not just for the cute penguin.

    It's Lonely Being the Only Female Computer Programmer

    I work as a programmer and I'm tired of seeing, like, one other female in the department most of the time. Out of the entire IT department there is only 1 other female that does  programming. I wish more women would become programmers since male computer programmers are not...

    I absorb information.

    I analyze data. I make sure that everything works. I relate better with computers than I do people. I listen to drum and bass. I abhor stupidity. I loath injustice. I admire courage. I have many layers.

    Well... I Am Not Really a Computer Geek...

    I dunno. I took CS classes as a minor at college. I had a hate-love relationship with CS. I still do. I feel lonely because I have rather strange interests: I like algorithms and AI ( algs part, not imitating human stupidity.) I like systems and software design. I like seeing...

    Its Kind of Sad Really..

    Variable to my age, I have aquired a lot of knowledge about computers. I am skilled in several Paradigim programming languages, as well as data-orientated and (for un-seen reasons..) esoteric! I have found favouritism in javascript and SQL, for they are most useful to me...

    Closet Nerd

    I love this little box in front of me. It occupies all of my time at work, an a significant amount of my free time. My friends would be shocked to find out I come home and play online games, chat to my E-friends, facebook, myspace, blog, use EP, and of course, google everything!

    Geek Is Just A Word

    Windows, Linux, Firefox And Chrome.

    Through necessity, i've learnt a lot about computers, i can build one from scratch but it's not as stable or as good as one built by an expert. I did it as a challenge and got a great deal of satisfaction from it. Pleased to see Window 7 is what Windows Vista should have been...

    Yet Another Geeky Girl

    I've been interested in computers since I was 9.  I think part of the appeal was that I wasn't supposed to be that interested because I was a girl, which of course made me want to do stuff even more.  I didn't hang around the computer geek boys growing up.  I...
