well im brandon and a freshman in my highschool. I live in a town with less than 400 people in it and my computer teacher thinks that it is an honor to be around an lcd monitor, thinks the tower is called the processor, and believes that RAM is the part of the computer that you save all your data on and ya i have to try so hard everyday from telling her it is all bs. I am 15 right now and I got an 01 toyota celica for my 14th b-day. I would say that there are maybe >5 people that know anything about computers in my community so i guess you could say i'm all alone when it comes to stuff like that. Most of my friends play sports but i dont really except i was in track last year and am thinking about track again or golf. This year as a freshman my parents are bribing me that if i stay in the top six of my class they will buy me a white macbook this summer. I am very high ranking in my school already but this year will be tough because I have a math class that is 2 years above my grade level so hope that all works. I am very interested in GUI design and redid the Windows XP UI to match my school colors and mascot a couple of years ago using stardock skinstudio. Thats about all i can come up with right now so...later

Hi all.

First post here. It's great to see such big community out there helping out others. Until 3 days ago, I've never used a Mac OS in my life. I've always wanted to try it, and now I have. With the help of this wonderful forum I was able to successfully install a Mac OS X on my HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop, and it works great! :( It took me a while to get the sound and video working, but I've managed.

Soon I'm going to write a complete tutorial on how I did it.

So... hey everybody, nice to be here :)

My name is Cormac. I'm currently a Computer Science major at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). I am part geek: Very interested in distributed hashing table systems, Unix systems security things - especially those belonging to those brilliant OpenBSD guys, and gambling theory. Mostly though, I'm a typical, rather energetic college student. I am a member of the RIT weightlifting team, I spend free time rock climbing and hopefully working a good deal while in Rochester. I was born in Galway, Ireland and was raised in Boston, Massachusetts. I have the accent... and I'm very single, and very disease free - just fyi - all you sexy Hackintosh girlies.

My name stems from my love of Nikon photography equipment and other products. Most people have said that I have the most diehard loyalty to Nikon, which I guess is true if I have Nikon eyeglasses on top of the myriad of Nikon equipment I already own. I love photography, however, I would never want to have it as my career.

I'm a systems engineer for a fortune 5 communications company based out of Basking Ridge, NJ. Anyone want to take a stab at who it may be? I analyze software, do bug reporting, and write documentation for internally developed applications. Really simple stuff in my eyes. I personally think I should never of left my previous job working as a system administrator as a midwest university.

I also develop websites in my offtime. My most recent project has been http://www.tampaforums.com. Think of it as a Myspace for the Tampa bay area.

Not really all that much to me. <shrug>

hey, my name is jordn. im 16, and i live in Leeds, England. i have been interested in macs since the launch of OS 10, and have owned one since i inherited an older Mac Mini. ive followed this project ever since it started at theuneasysilence, and watched it blossom into what it is now. i'm currently studying Computing, Geography, Economics and Environmental Sciences in college (taking physics next year!) I enjoy mountain biking, playing the guitar, socialising with friends and the like. i spend way too much time on the internet, and far too much time playing Americas Army (my nickname is the same, so look for me if any1 plays).

currently using OSX 10.4.8 as a test bed until i can afford a 23-inch iMac....

Hey there,
I guess its about time I introduce my self. Name is Jordan first of all. Im 19 and I go to University of Pittsburgh. I first got involved with Macs at high school, but hated them until I tried Panther through PearPC. I also loved the features that Tiger had so I asked my folks to get me an iMac G5 for graduation,and shes still going strong. Besides computers I love to swim, and ski and hopefully try snowboarding the winter. I volunteer as a tutor in a high school to try and help others that are having trouble with their work. Overall my life is pretty hectic as most, but its always nice to just relax and let the world pass you by. As for my username, I made it up for GMail and liked it enough to use it for usernames wherever I go. Peace :) .

Hey everyone,

This is my first post on these forums. I was introduced to them by my uncle. He's been kind enough to lend me his computer, which is running JaS OSX 10.4.8. I'm a freshman in college, hoping to save up enough for a Mac Pro. Right now I'm learning everything I possibly can about C++, and programming.

I'm Kelly, 20 years old, single... work as a Technical Support Consultant for an Internet Service Provider. I am hoping to back to school, sent off some applications and just playing the waiting game at the moment. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada.

I have been a Mac user since the age of 6... back in 1992. My mom got a PC in 2002 (gasp) and the Mac withdrawal was just too much for me so I got an iBook last year.
