Dr.G, a little off topic, but after having lived in Canada for a while, are you still a Bulldog, or better yet, do you still hate the Gators? FSU fan by the way. Cheers!

hi sheamusj,
i've certainly found montreal to be so - the combination of a low cost of living, incredibly cheap university (if you're a resident or studying in french), somewhat more left-leaning politics, and a culture that feels, well, more like a culture (whatever that means..) seem to attract a lot of creative-type folk. the big ol' downside is finding work if you're an anglophone
but so far, for me at least, that's far outweighed by all the good - i highly recommend it as a place to come hang out in for a while, at least. job market aside, i know lots of anglos worry about not speaking french, or their french not being good enough, but i've found the overwhelming majority of francophones to be very welcoming and accomodating - so long as one's willing to make an effort to speak their language (afterall, they're all expected to speak english anytime they go anywhere else in canada... and often in quebec aswell).
all that said.. i am starting to miss toronto a bit

* Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)

Hey. My name is Chris (male-student), I'm currently studying Political Science in my second year, but planning to switch into an Advertising program.. w00t for uncertain career paths..

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Sports, Cars, Politics, Macs, Photography, Social Life.. just living, loving and laughing..

* How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved.

I came into contact with some money in my senior year of high school.. money that was in trust.. and I was planning on getting a new computer for university in the fall. Thought about Macs like two years before it but never considered it because of the money. Got a large portion of money, found a ad on ehmac for a 12' Powerbook.. and I bought it.. blindly never used one before in my life..

* How many/which Macs have you owned or presently own?

1, 12' PB 1.33ghz

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

Adium, Mail, iPhoto, so many.. life is easy with my Mac..

* What general area of this great country are you from?

Ottawa

hi!

hey there!

i've been around on the ehmac.ca forums for a really long time now, just never got around to posting anything. i'm from richmond hill, ontario.

i own 4 macs. i bought my first mac in the spring of 2001, before getting into a four year design program (york/sheridan program). it was a dual g4 450 mhz. i still have this mac because i can't seem to part with it. it served me well! a few years later, i bought myself a 12" 1 ghz powerbook. i needed something portable and i need something with good power, so the 12" worked great for me. a year later, i bought myself a 2 ghz dual g5 powermac (non-intel). about a year after that, i won a 17" imac g5 from the yorkdale apple store.

i'm a huge mac enthusiast. i've gotten lots of friends to switch over. those friends, in turn got their friends to switch too.

anyways, that's enough about me! just wanted to say hello!

Happy to see your post. The ehMac community appreciates your willingness to contribute!

BTW one of my sons went to Sheridan for three years then a fourth year at Humber. Got offered a great job within two weeks of completing college.

Okay, I'll bite.

Haven't been here lately. I'm a mom of two (both girls aged 3 and 1) and work from my parents' home managing an investment portfolio. In a previous life, I was a social worker.

My dad bought our first Mac in about 1985 and we have owned Macs ever since - first the original (we bought a second disc drive and ultimately a 20 mg external hard drive for it - how would we ever use up all that space ). When said hard drive was dying we bought a colour classic. When I left home I bought a Power Mac 6500 and a year later my dad bought the first iMac. Last year I got an iBook G4 (the better to be on the computer and still hang out where the kids are) and very recently my dad bought a new Intel iMac.

Despite the 20 odd years of Mac ownership I'm still not very technologically inclined - I find that a lot of stuff discussed here (especially in troubleshooting) is way over my head. Please excuse this if you are reading my pleas for help!

SJB, I appreciate you taking the time to (re)introduce yourself.

You sure have your hands full with two little girls, wow, ages 3 and 1... You are lucky!

BTW I've been hanging out with Macs for 22 years and I barely know anything compared to many others within the ehMac community.

I live about 10 minutes outside of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Two kids, too many computers. Into camping (including winter camping), video editing and the odd computer game.

The rest is classified.

Heard about this place from Groovetube and I'm told another couple of mutual on-line acquaintances are here as well.
