My name is Manuel.

I'm a graphic & multimedia designer in the National Capital Region (NCR) originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick. I work for a small, but mighty, design and marketing firm on Bank Street where I do all sorts of wierd and wonderful things: graphic design and layout in both the traditional and electronic medium, illustration (2-D and 3-D), interactive media, and the occasional web site. In my spare time I do a little video production and motion graphics as a hobby, watch movies, listen to music, draw, and read comics from time to time (just getting back into it with DC's Justice series and Marvel's Civil War.)

I got into Macs about 11-12 years ago when I started a multimedia course at NBCC.

Currently my wife and I own two Macs: A Power Mac Dual 1.8 G5 and a Powerbook 17" 1Ghz G4. We also have two iPods--1 3G and 1 1st-Gen Video iPod.

My favorite programs? Photoshop, Illustrator, ElectricImage3D, FinalCut, AfterEffects, etc.

* Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)
Dan.Male.21.Work in an auto body shop owned by my father (may or may not join the family business).

* Brief summary of some of your other interests
Ever since joining the Apple side of things I've always been interested in using my computer for everything I possibly can. My current interests are DVD's, playing and learning Bass Guitar, customizing my Pismo to have a lot more balls (320GB of HD, G4 550Mhz, among other things hopefully by the end of this year). I am big on self inprovement books, probably not the kind most people would read, 1 eg is "Every Mans Battle".

* How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved.
I've wanted a mac for as long as I can remember, I saw a friend buy an ibook and after trying it out I fell in love with the concept of macs. I purchased a titanium pb, then went to a iMac 2Ghz intel, and now with my trusty Pismo. I've had many friends that I've helped over the years with their PC issues... now I simply REFUSE to help them because I hate dealing with PC's.

* How many/which Macs have you owned or presently own?
Only own my Pismo now. Owned 3 in total

* What are your favourite Mac programs?
Oh man iCal, Safari, Adium Beta, MacTheRipper, Dashboard, WCIII, Doom 3, iTunes, Quicktime Pro to record the group playing, VLC, hate windows media player (thought it does look more compact than the windows version), Aperture, among others...

* What general area of this great country are you from?
KDub area. Originally from Romania (moved here when I was 5yrs old, revolution time)

Might as well redo this in the official thread, in the fancy new forum.

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

Male, I am. I'm through the far side of 30, and Logan's Run turned out to be fiction, so it's all good. I am married with a lovely 3 year old daughter, and both the honourific and the name that comprise my nick are true.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Mostly, work and family events, but other off time events include reading, watching House and Battlestar and the occasional movie, and playing World of Warcraft. And beer.

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

I grew up with Apples, and have never owned anything else. I've also never been anything other than the casual user.

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

I've probably owned 4 different models of Mac, and there were some Apple models in the early days, too. I currently have a G4 Quicksilver, and a G3 iBook. Looking to replace both with one new MacBook at some point in the next little while.

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

Safari, Mail. When I have a machine with a DVD burner and enough memory/power to really use iMovie, I expect I will come to enjoy it greatly.

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

The nation's capital!

Who you are (male, female, student, professional, etc.)
I'm a 26 year old male Graphic Designer in and have been doing so since graduating from Durham College in 2001. I've worked at a small printing company doing design since I started my co-op here 5 years ago. I live with my girlfriend of 3 years, Corina.

Brief summary of some of your other interests
I'm a big music head, liking music of all sorts. I attend concerts whenever possible. While at these concerts I love taking photos assuming the venue allows me to do so. I also love cooking. I'm not a professional or anything, but I'm pretty good at it.

How you got involved with Macs, or how you are currently involved.
I'm practically a lifer. I've used a Mac since I was in grade 2 I believe while in school, then in 1990 my parents purchased a Macintosh SE(which I now own and still functions). My parents didn't buy a new computer for quite awhile, so the SE was in service for a good part of the 90's. When I went off to college in 1999 I bought a loaded G3 B/W which got me through college and is still kicking around, now running Ubuntu. 2 years ago I purchased a Rev A iMac G5 to replace the aging G3. At work I have a G4 Quicksilver as my workstation.

What are your favourite Mac programs?
Camino, Captain FTP, Adium

What general area of this great country are you from?
I am from southwestern Ontario in a little town called Paris, where I both live and work. I was born in Ottawa and raised in a small town near there called Richmond until I was 14.

If you know any places south-western ontario looking for a designer, I might be interested

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

My name is Mike. I am a 33 year professional software developer currently working primarily in Linux with some Win32 systems development. My previous development experience was in Win32 device drivers. I've been a professional software developer for more than 12 years and an amateur developer for 20 years. I have been a regular Linux user since '93 and Windows user since the first days.

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Digital photography, home theatre/HDTV, audio, mountain biking, and outdoorsy stuff.

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

Bought my first (and only) Mac in 2004. It is an 12" iBook G4 1GHz. I hope to add something with a little more horsepower to the stable soon. I bought this machine primarily to do some Cocoa development on. I've done a little but nothing major.

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

1/1

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

One of the things that drew me to OS X in the first place was iPhoto. I still use it regularly, although I've come to be bothered by some of it's limitations. I use Mail, Safari, Camino, AdiumX, Democracy, and others. on a regular basis.

Why are there so few females at ehMac?

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

Female, 62, retired from my job as a programmer several years ago, and just recently started working again (telecommuting)

* Brief summary of some of your other interests

Interests include reading (now listening to audiobooks), crafty things - mostly beading, grandkids (3), the interwebs and "House"

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

I was fortunate to be picked for a project developing a database application on the Mac platform at work. It was pretty cutting edge and I learned a lot - and my love for Macs was born. One of the consultants on the project had been an engineer at Apple before he left to form his own consulting business.

The first Mac I used at work was a Mac Plus running OS 3. I remember the upgrade to OS 4 - what an improvement.

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

The first Mac I owned was the original Classic - a wonderful little machine. Next I got an LC and then moved up to a IIcx, and kept getting machines a bit faster until I finally got a strawberry iMac which served me well for a couple of years until I got a Graphite iMac. On a whim I treated myself to a G3 iBook when they first came out and made a complete switch to laptops.

I now own 2 PowerBooks and can see a MacBook in my near future. I also have a 60 GB iPod Photo and a 4 GB nano.

* What are your favourite Mac programs?

Safari and mail.app

My favourite programs to run on my Mac are PhotoShop Elements and 4th Dimension.

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

I live in Saskatchewan, but have lived in Calgary and Edmonton as well as a year in TO back in the 60s but that was a blur

* you didn't ask but I'll tell you anyway

WINWIN is my license plate - I tell people that it's my retirement strategy but the real story is best forgotten.

My license plate predates my introduction to the interweb, so when I started signing up for things on the net, I decided to use winwin as my handle only to discover that someone was already using it - thus the winwintoo.

Take care, Margaret
