    He was getting at the point that they feel old because their oldskool technology is prehistoric read the post above (or the post he quoted) I think you may have misunderstood..

    anyway, back on topic

    I've been glued to a keyboard since I was 4 or 5, my first computer was a Mac IIsi - sexy, eh? (I got it in '90, when they were fresh on the market - it cost around $4000)

    I dont really know what else to say, I'm a sound engineer - so I basicly spend my days playing with lots of cool expencive audio toys - its good fun! And other than that, I spend my time here keeping you all in line

    you couldn't call yourself that in Canada. the word engineer is restricted to those with an Engineering degree from university. Microsoft recently lost a case in court because they were calling their workers "software/computer engineers"

    i'm not being picky, just letting you know to be careful with that word.
